The University of Oklahoma Foundation Trustees

The strength of the OU Foundation is directly tied to the high quality of its Board.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, the University of Oklahoma Foundation is organized under the laws of the State of Oklahoma for charitable purposes and is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Directors composed of up to forty volunteer professional and business leaders-all of whom are OU alumni, and all of whom have a great love for the University, its students, faculty, and programs.
