The Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) Foundation, Inc. recently hosted a “Thank-A-Dawg” event on the Weatherford campus.

The event, which the Foundation coordinates regularly, celebrates SWOSU’s many private donor-investors who generously contribute to the Foundation providing scholarships and faculty support to the university.

At the most recent “Thank-A-Dawg,” the SWOSU women’s volleyball team graciously volunteered their time and connected with over 160 SWOSU donors. The volunteers used telephones generously donated for the purpose by Pioneer Cellular to reach out and express SWOSU’s sincere gratitude and appreciation.

“SWOSU stands firmly on the hilltop today because of continued partnership with our generous and thoughtful donors,” said SWOSU President Dr. Randy L. Beutler. “The philanthropic backing of our alumni, emeriti and friends via the SWOSU Foundation, Inc. permits our university to deliver student scholarships, faculty and staff support, and capital development beyond what is possible with only state funding. I know I speak for the entire SWOSU campus community when I say a sincere ‘thank you’ to our donors for their continued investment in our mission of providing a quality higher education to all.”

The SWOSU Foundation was established in 1977 to promote philanthropy and distribute funds to support the activities and programs of SWOSU. Located on the Weatherford campus in the historic Burton House, the Foundation currently stewards over $24 million in assets for the benefit of SWOSU.
