Help Unlock $50,000 in Matching for Geology Student Enrichment

Make the most of your gift - $50,000 in matching available!

Gary and Susan Ford have generously offered to match donations of $500 or more dollar for dollar, up to a total of $50,000, to the Geology Student Enrichment Endowment in order to help establish and build the endowment. 

Your employer may also match your gift! Many OSU donors are employed by companies that encourage donations to higher education. Matching gift companies work with employees to offer additional funding to the specific OSU programs supported by their employees. Donors who wish to support Oklahoma State University can provide more substantial support with the assistance of a matching gift company. Companies that offer corporate matching contribute a major part of the dollars raised for OSU’s annual giving programs by adding to an employee’s higher education gift. Some companies continue to provide a match even after retirement. To find out if your company matches donations to the OSU Foundation, visit https://secure.osugiving.com/matching-gift-search

Why support the Geology Student Enrichment Endowment?

Student enrichment funds offer our students many out-of-classroom opportunities that provide experience extremely beneficial to students’ placement in the industry following graduation. The funds help cover costs for student travel to professional conferences, workshops, and short courses (including international travel), help defray the cost of field trips associated with courses offered by our School, and aid in bringing speakers to campus to educate our students in new ways and help them network with industry leaders. The availability of these opportunities helps attract many students, allowing us to grow and be even more competitive in the region, the nation, and even around the world in attracting high quality students to our program. The Endowment will be invested and builds over time to ensure that future Geology students will always have enrichment funds available to them.
