March 16 Notice to Donors and OU Community

As many of you know, the University of Oklahoma made the decision to close the OU-Norman campus for the time being. The decision was in response to the identification of a confirmed case of the coronavirus among a member of the OU community. Out of a sense of caution and in reaction to the situation at OU, the Foundation office is also closed.

However, we are not idle. The Foundation is taking multiple steps to maintain services provided, both to our donors and to the University of Oklahoma. Most of our staff will work remotely from home, and a small number of staff members will be working in the office on occasion on a rotational basis.

You may reach any of our staff by using individual email addresses here or by using our general email address oufoundation@ou.edu. You may also leave a message on our main telephone number – (405) 321-1174 – and we will return the call as soon as possible. If you have a specific question about your donation or need a duplicate tax receipt, please contact donorhelp@ou.edu or call (405) 310-4812.

None of us knows how long all of this will last, but we are prepared to sustain our operations for an extended period. As time passes, we will know more, and our plans will adjust accordingly. Know that we are committed to adapting to these fluid conditions.

Thank you for your interest, your support and your understanding. Please be safe and well.

Guy L. Patton
President
