Champions Circle

What is the KOSU Champions Circle?

KOSU has a strong base of supporters, but there is an important group of donors whose gifts each year build extra momentum as we approach the opportunities and challenges of keeping up the standard of quality expected from us. The KOSU Champions Circle provides the excellence funds that support virtually every activity of the station and represents the highest level of recognition an annual giving donor to KOSU can achieve.

The Champions Circle consists of major investors in KOSU. More important, they are our counselors and ambassadors. These Champions enable KOSU to expand its vision of excellence, to develop new programs, and to employ cutting-edge telecommunications technologies to find innovative ways of better serving the community.

KOSU Champions Circle members contribute at least $100 a month or $1,200 per year toward support of KOSU. Thank you for making a meaningful difference in the future of public radio at Oklahoma State University!

The Impact of Your Major Gift

Membership in the KOSU Champions Circle sends a clear statement about the strength of your support for the station. Reinforce your passion for public radio with a financial contribution to this important annual fund. Champions Circle members stand squarely in support of the listeners, volunteers, students and staff who make KOSU the great place that it is. Membership in the Champions Circle places you in the forefront of efforts to build and maintain excellence at KOSU.

How The Program Works

Annual membership begins at the time of your gift and continues for 12 months. Memberships may be held individually, jointly by couples, or even anonymously. Gifts may be given outright with cash, securities, real estate or property; corporate matching gifts at the time they are applied for, regardless of when they are expected to be received; payments made to cover the cost of life insurance policies assigned to a qualifying fund; or other irrevocable gifts.
