Important tax information

The Oklahoma State University Foundation is recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS requires non-profit organizations to provide donors with a good faith estimate of the value of any benefits received as a result of their contribution, and the value of any related benefits received by the donor must be subtracted from the amount of the contribution. If a benefit is immediately known, it is listed. Benefits considered insubstantial by the IRS do not need to be considered when determining the tax deductibility of a contribution. Please consult your tax advisor with any specific questions or concerns.

Important athletic contribution information

Gifts received for the benefit of OSU Athletics may, upon the written direction of the OSU VP for Athletic Programs and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, be transferred to Cowboy Athletics, Inc., a 501(c)(3), to invest and disburse in accordance with the donors’ designation and its fiduciary responsibilities. At Oklahoma State University, compliance with NCAA rules is of the utmost importance. As a supporter of OSU, please remember maintaining the integrity of the University and the Athletic Department is your first responsibility. As a donor, NCAA rules apply to you. If you have any questions, feel free to call the OSU Office of Athletic Compliance at 405.744.7862.

Remember to always ASK BEFORE YOU ACT!

Important McKnight Center Information

Gifts or a portion of gifts received for the benefit of the McKnight Center may be transferred to the Foundation for the McKnight Center for the Performing Arts, a separate 501(c)(3) entity, to invest and disburse to support the programming for the McKnight Center.

Common gifts to OSU and how they are reflected on gift receipts:

Benefit: The benefit value as shown on the receipt is the non-tax deductible portion of your gift.

Company/organization/private foundation information: Gifts received directly from a company or private foundation are included; however, gifts received from multiple subsidiaries or business units may be sent on separate receipts.

Corporate matching gift information: Many companies encourage their employees to support higher education by increasing the impact of an employee’s gift through a corporate match. Matching gifts listed on this report may vary from the employee’s gift record due to the company’s payment schedule, fiscal year or matching gift policies.

Gifts in kind: Gifts of tangible personal property (e.g., works of art, jewelry, automobiles, etc.) are listed in a separate section. In accordance with IRS requirements associated with gifts of tangible personal property, the receipt reflects the date of the gift and a brief description of the donated item(s) only and does not indicate a value. Value is to be determined according to IRS guidelines.

Independently Administered Fund: Includes gifts received directly from an organization that provides employee giving and receipting services and will include payroll deduction, employee match, or both. These gifts are receipted to the Independently Administered Entity and are listed in a separate section.

Individual’s company/family foundation information: Gifts directed by an individual, but made via another entity such as a person’s privately owned company or their family foundation, are separately listed on a year-end receipt to that organization.

IRA rollovers/Donor Advised Funds: Directed distributions from your IRA plan administrator or Donor Advised Fund to the OSU Foundation are NOT tax-deductible gifts.

OSU faculty and staff payroll deduction: These gifts are deposited at the Foundation and recorded with a gift date equal to the last day of the month that your deduction came out of your paycheck.

Trust: Gifts receipted to an individual’s trust during the year will be listed in a separate section and sorted by each uniquely named trust.

All gifts are subject to the Allocation of Donated Funds policy, as set by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. To learn about how gifts are allocated, visit our FAQ page.
