OU Quarter Century Club
In May 2012, the University of Oklahoma Foundation launched a new program to honor donors of 25 years or more for their steadfast support to the University. Members of the Quarter Century Club receive a personalized letter from OU President David Boren, an individualized report with accumulative total giving years and history, along with a commemorative OU pin.
“Quarter Century donors are truly the backbone of OU’s charitable giving,” says Boren in his congratulatory letter. “Year after year your gifts have enriched the programs you chose to support and encouraged the members of the University community associated with those programs.”
Boren and his wife Molly Shi Boren are among the first group of 1,600 Quarter Century donors who were initially recognized. Their first gift together, a contribution to the Bennie Owen Memorial Scholarship fund, was made in November 1977, the month they were married.
“Creating the OU Quarter Century Club is our way of saying thank you for your unwavering support,” says Foundation President Guy Patton. “Your generosity has put new programs in place, created new buildings on all three campuses, and sent thousands of outstanding OU graduates into the world to make it a better place. I’m looking forward to joining the club very soon.”
Members of the Quarter Century Club have contributed significantly to OU through annual giving and the building of endowments at the University of Oklahoma Foundation.
