Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about OU Giving Day 2018.

What is OU Giving Day?

Last year was our first ever OU Giving Day, raising $179,000 for student scholarships! 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 university or to the programs or schools 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!

How do I donate?

Please visit during our live campaign. You can either click the "Give Now" button at the top of the website, or scroll to the bottom and choose an area of interest to learn more and choose a more-specific designation area.
