Below you will find answers to many common questions about Give Orange 2023.
What is Give Orange?
Give Orange is a special time when the Oklahoma State University family comes together in support of their orange passions.
On April 4 & 5, Oklahoma State University students, alumni and friends are coming together for 1,890 minutes to support their ORANGE passions. For 31.5 hours, campus programs and units will take part in OSU's Give Orange by sharing how Cowboys from across the globe can help them achieve their goals and bring success to OSU. Every gift given during those 1,890 minutes will count towards Give Orange.
Why 1,890 minutes?
Oklahoma State University, founded on December 25, 1890, was built upon the individual generosity of four families who donated 200 acres to create a home for our university. Since then, your donations have transformed OSU into America's Brightest Orange.
On April 4 & 5, we will celebrate the generosity that started with OSU's founding by participating in 1,890 minutes of giving.
When is Give Orange live?
Give Orange is live from 12 p.m. CST on April 4th through 7:30 p.m. on April 5th.
How can I donate during Give Orange?
Come back to giveorange.okstate.edu on April 4th at 12 p.m. to be one of the first to make your gift during the 1,890 minutes for OSU.
