College foundations raise $196,000 in scholarships

December 10, 2017



The Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Assoc. and the SWOSU Foundation joined forces in a #GivingTuesday Scholarship Showdown challenge to raise funds for each university’s student scholarships. The challenge resulted in more than $196,000 total funds raised.


The SWOSU (Southwestern Oklahoma State University) and Northwestern Okla­homa State University communities generously responded to the  challenge as SWOSU finished the competition with $100,200 and Northwestern with $95,


928 to raise a grand total of $196,127 to fund student scholarships.


“The Giving Tuesday challenge was a win for both schools, but most importantly a win for the many students who will receive needed financial assistance,” said Janet Cunningham, Northwestern president. “At Northwestern, we far exceeded last year’s Giving Tuesday totals. A little competition brought out the best in our donors and we offer each our deepest gratitude.”
