Dear Fellow Alum,

Oglethorpe’s current success is a result of dedicated alumni who have given back to our great University over the years. But Oglethorpe has big goals for its future.

That’s why I am issuing a challenge to all alumni to be one of the 1,100 donors to contribute by Alumni Weekend, April 21, 2018, to help reach our goals. In return, I am matching every gift—no matter how much you give—dollar for dollar, up to $1 million for the new I.W. “Ike” Cousins Center for Science and Innovation. I know we can all come together to make a $1 million difference for OU!

Please support the Oglethorpe Annual Fund with a gift that helps the University meet its immediate needs for this academic year, and consider adding a bit more for the I.W. “Ike” Cousins Center for Science and Innovation capital campaign that will help shape its future. Any amount you contribute before April 21 will be doubled, so you will feel twice as good about the decision you make to support the University that has given you and me so much.

Thank you for your commitment and generosity,

Dean DuBose Smith ’70
