Ways to Participate

President’s Associates are friends and alumni who support the higher education mission of Rogers State University in a number of ways. Unrestricted gifts for Presidential priorities assist in meeting the University’s Greatest Needs. Designated gifts support several high priority University programs and services. These include academics, scholarships, athletics, alumni, Bit by Bit Therapeutic Horse Riding Program, RSU Public TV, RSU Public Radio and more. Establishing an endowment or including RSU in legacy planning can provide benefits not only to students of today but also far into the future. However you choose to give, know your gift makes a difference.

Matching Gifts Work for You and the University

Many employers will match donations at a rate of 1:1 and sometimes as high as 3:1. A company that matches at a rate of 1:1 means the impact of your annual associate gift is multiplied. Find out if your employer matches gifts to the RSU Foundation.

Leverage Your Gift to the Annual Associate Level

All known contributions to the RSU Foundation and approved University programs or events, given within the same fiscal year (July 1 to June 30), will count toward the donor’s annual giving recognition level. You are encouraged to review your annual program and event support and consider an equal or greater gift for the University’s Greatest Needs.
