OU CLUB OF KANSAS CITY
Our goal is to provide a common link to alumni and friends of the University of Oklahoma.
We host Watch Parties for all football games and other sports as possible, support OU Prospective Student Services events in our area, and sponsor OU events and speakers from the academic and athletic areas of the University.
Our primary purpose is to provide scholarship assistance to OU students from the greater Kansas City area and surrounding Club region.
We are always excited for local students who chose our University and greatly appreciate those who can help us provide assistance to the students.
Club membership contributions provide a significant source of income to the scholarship fund, and additional, tax-deductible donations are always appreciated.
Prize drawing earnings, tip jar contributions, silent auctions and donated drawing items all contribute to scholarships.
