After an exciting fall of Cowboy and Cowgirl sports and with 2015 coming to a close, we encourage you to consider a year-end gift to Oklahoma State Athletics. Gifts made to the POSSE support scholarships for our student athletes and individual sports by providing discretionary funds for program operations. If you are considering or plan to donate before the end of 2015, there are key dates and factors to keep in mind ... 

Gifts made by check: The IRS states that the U.S. Postal Service postmark date serves as the official gift date for donations made by check and sent through U.S. Mail. Therefore, the gift will be credited in 2015 so long as both postmark and check are dated no later than December 31, 2015. Please note that the IRS does not give the same treatment for postmarks provided on deliveries made by carriers such as Federal Express, UPS, etc.

Gifts made by credit card: A gift by credit card is complete on the day the card is charged. The gift is deductible in the year the charge is made. If you call or send directions in a letter to charge a credit card in an envelope postmarked in 2015, but the university is not able to process the charge until after the first of the year, this gift is not considered deductible in 2015.

Stock Gifts: Gifts of securities are credited on the day they are received in the OSU Foundation brokerage account. To make a gift of stock, please contact Brandy Huston at 405-385-5111 or email

The POSSE office will be closed for holidays from Thursday, Dec. 24, through Friday, Jan. 1 ... If you would like to make a gift outside of normal business hours, please log into your Athletics Account Manager.

You may also visit the OSU Foundation’s web page at or by call 800-622-4678 no later than NOON on Thursday, December 31, 2015.

Thank you for your continued support of OSU Athletics.

Go Pokes!
