Donors’ yearly involvement through ticket renewals, donor seating and annual giving are paramount to an improved operating budget (OSU is currently ranked ninth in the Big 12 Conference). Membership starts at $150/year and includes benefits such as the POSSE Magazine and member auto decals. POSSE annual funds contribute to student-athlete scholarships and operating expenses, which are critical to helping our teams stay competitive. Gifts of all sizes impact all areas of athletics.

Leave A Legacy
The future of Oklahoma State University athletics has never been brighter! Within seven years, world-class facilities will be the norm for every sport. These facilities will provide each team an opportunity to compete for championships, but this is only part of the winning equation. Just as important is the annual budget given to each sport, which provides scholarships, travel, academic support, strength & conditioning, housing, food, etc. In an effort to ensure that all of our sports are competitive, the OSU Athletic Department is initiating a fundraising campaign to fully endow all scholarships.
Endowed Athletic Scholarships
Assisting OSU Athletics through funding scholarship helps our student-athletes with financial aid in their respective studies, takes pressure off the annual operating budget and leaves a life-long legacy honoring the donor’s family. Our goal is to endow all 229 athletic scholarship positions to ensure that every OSU athlete has the chance to achieve a first-class education at a winning institution.
There are three athletic endowment scholarship levels: $500,000, $250,000 and $125,000. The campaign goal is $115 million.
