Below you will find answers to many common questions about OU Giving Day.
What is OU Giving Day?
OU Giving Day is an annual university-wide fundraising event that lasts ONE DAY to inspire students, alumni and friends to make a gift to the areas on campus that are meaningful to them. For ONE DAY we encourage you, Sooner Nation, to come together as a community and show your support.
Why should I participate in OU Giving Day?
Donor support is critical to sustaining the same opportunities and Sooner experience that the University of Oklahoma is proud to offer its students. Donor support makes it possible to help students attend OU through scholarships and allows the University to continually add new degree programs and keep current ones in the top ranks. No matter the size of your gift, you can truly make a difference for current and future Sooners!
