SWOSU Foundation Takes Part in #GivingTuesday on November 29

The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Foundation in Weatherford will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global event promoting generosity and giving through the power of social media, on Tuesday, November 29.

Gifts made to the Foundation during #GivingTuesday will benefit the SWOSU Bulldog Angels Fund. Established in 2014 by SWOSU Distinguished Alumnus Bill Howell, Class of 1975, Bulldog Angels is designated as a student crisis fund which helps students when all other options for assistance are unavailable or depleted.

The SWOSU Foundation joins the #GivingTuesday crusade to inspire everyone to make a gift of any size to this very worthy cause.

“It’s a universal fact of life: no person stands where he or she stands without the support of others,” said SWOSU Foundation Executive Director Garrett King. “The SWOSU Bulldog Angels Fund provides sorely-needed aid to some of our university’s most vulnerable students.”

“Gifts of any size help us to ensure that financial hardships or crises at home do not keep our Bulldogs from pursuing higher learning and higher living,” King said. “Please consider joining us on #GivingTuesday.”

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 $20 million in assets for the benefit of SWOSU.
