The President’s Partners of Western Oklahoma State College is comprised of individuals, businesses and organizations that provide financial support above and beyond operational funding provided to the college by the Oklahoma Legislature. These annual funds are used to provide educational opportunities to enhance the student learning experience at WOSC. The President’s Partners Program will provide necessary funding for a variety of purposes including scholarships, program funding, promotions, student and faculty recruitment, facility improvements, and initial funding for endowments and endowment development. Larry Duffy, Executive Secretary for the WOSC Foundation, Inc. stated, “All of the support, current and past, has made a tremendous impact on the ability of the WOSC Foundation, Inc. to provide necessary funding for Western that is not provided due to the decline of regular college funding.”
In order to become involved in the President’s Partner Program, a donor contributes an annual gift in the amount of $1,000 to support college programs and scholarship opportunities for students. Duffy stated, “the most significant part of the gift is the passion exemplified on the part of the donor to support the college. As the donors demonstrate benevolence, others recognize their own ability to help with the much needed funding for the benefit of our students here at Western.”
