Estate Planning

There are many options for leaving your legacy through planned gifts to OSU. Some of these are:

  • Bequests through a will or trust.
  • Designating the OSU Foundation as the beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.
  • Utilizing a gift model such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable unitrust or IRA rollover.


Endowed Gifts

Endowments are a powerful investment in Oklahoma State’s future as they deliver a dependable, perpetual source of funding. Endowed gifts are unique because they are invested, and each year a percentage of the return is made available to the university to support critical university initiatives. This annual distribution to the university is described as a “spending policy,” and the calculation of the distribution amount is approved by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Endowments can be created with a minimum gift of $25,000.
