STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State University Athletics has launched a new-and-improved website for the POSSE: okstate.com/posse.
The POSSE—Providing Opportunities for Scholastic and Sports Excellence—is the fundraising arm of OSU Athletics and is comprised of loyal and true fans who give to OSU Athletics on an annual basis and for special projects. Funds raised via the POSSE support over 500 Cowboy and Cowgirl student-athletes through scholarships (including tuition, fees, room, board and books).
The comprehensive website features information and links related to annual giving opportunities (including the Excellence Fund and new STAR Fund initiative), as well as donor seating, member benefits, major gifts, Priority Points, key dates, gameday parking and tailgating, and more. Fans can also read online issues of the award-winning POSSE Magazine.
"We want our online home to be current, informative and inspirational," said Ellen Ayres, Associate Athletics Director for Annual Giving. "The POSSE is focused on empowering our student-athletes to strive for and achieve excellence in all facets of their college experience. Along the way, POSSE members can share in this goal as the team behind the teams. Our updated site will help facilitate giving and our outreach efforts. Being a game-changer is just a click away."
The online overhaul was produced by Summit Athletic Media, a full-service creative agency specializing in sports marketing and design. Founded in 1997, Summit offers a wide range of creative and strategic services specifically for athletic teams and organizations.
