Dear Alumni and Friends:

The journey has been remarkable.

From a school founded in 1909 to prepare the children of Native Americans, farmers, and ranchers for entry into college, to one of the nation’s premier military academies, and finally to a dynamic regional university and center of learning, the story of Rogers State University is unmatched.

Today, thousands of students from across northeast Oklahoma, the nation and the world, come to Rogers State University in search of opportunity. They understand, as you do, that education has the power to transform lives.

As a member of the RSU family, you can play a meaningful role in supporting the next generation of Hillcats by making a gift during our inaugural Giving Week, February 10-15. Our campaign theme of 20 for 20 highlights our efforts to raise $20,000 to support our 20th year as a bachelor’s degree granting university. Collectively, your gifts will have a significant impact on students through scholarships or program support.

I ask you to consider making a gift to RSU during Giving Week. You can donate online by clicking on the Give to RSU link at the top of our home page, or directly at www.rsu.edu/development-foundation/give-to-rsu/. You may also mail a check to the RSU Foundation at 1701 W. Will Rogers Ave., Claremore, OK 74017. Unless specified, your gift will be used to provide scholarships for those students with the greatest financial need.

Thank you for your consideration of a gift. Let’s show the world what it means to be Hillcats!

Sincerely,

Steve Valencia

Vice President for Development
