Many of Oklahoma City University’s donors choose to make their gifts through the OCU annual giving program. Annual Fund gifts, which are usually unrestricted (meaning the donor allows the University to determine how the gift is used), are used for scholarships or assist with Oklahoma City University’s ongoing needs. Funds raised through the OCU Annual Fund have a direct impact on the everyday lives of students and are applied in a variety of ways. Annual Fund contributions keep tuition down, provide scholarship assistance, conduct critical building renovations, secure vital equipment for student use and maintain the natural beauty of campus. Annual Gifts can be of any amount. You are able to designate your gift to a specific college or department. Click Here to make your donation now.
The majority of gifts are made via mail or through our student-staffed OCU Phonathon. Our phone calls and direct mail pieces also help us update our records; communicate new initiatives or exciting programs; and answer any questions that our alumni or friends might have.
Most gifts to OCU are in the form of cash, either through a check or a credit or debit card. If you itemize, cash gifts are fully deductible, up to 50 percent of Adjusted Gross Income. If you work for any number of national/international employers, your company may match your gift as well. Check with your personnel or human resources office to be sure.

Arranging a corporate matching gift is an easy way for OCU alumni, parents and friends to increase the impact of their personal contributions to the University. By taking advantage of their company's matching gift benefit, a donor can generate an additional gift which may double or triple his or her own contribution without any further obligation from the donor.
Our mission is to build and maintain an accurate donor base, and to increase the unrestricted funds, for the OCU Fund.
Our role is to provide a means for donors to contribute to OCU on a regular basis, and to keep our alumni informed about Oklahoma City University; therefore, allowing the alumni to know where their gift would be most effective.
We thank you for your previous gifts and look forward to visiting with you soon. GO STARS! Click here to give today.
