SURPRISE! Our Campaign ends with a bang!

June 30, 2016

Hello wonderful donors and supporters!

I have been holding back this surprise for a number of weeks and I have been so excited to let you, our donors and supporters, know about the final results of our campaign.

Thanks to Laura VanGundy of OU Development and David Goodspeed of OU IT we have received 4 Surface Pro Hybrid Laptops for our students. We are so thankful for their generosity and our efforts will go to outfitting these laptops for our students with the programs and accessories they need to excel in college.

Our recipients will be chosen by a combination of their scholarship and their current plans to attend a four-year program in the Fall of 2016.  We already have some great prospects and we will send more pictures when we have our big Laptop Party later on this month.  

Keep an eye on our Twitter at #SoonerUB and at for updates on our activities this summer.

Again, we thank you for your support in our first campaign.  We appreciate your care and attention to the Sooner Upward Bound students and your faith in our program.  Have a wonderful summer!

Thank you so much for your support.  I just wanted to introduce you to Nate Bullock, one of our students benefiting from this endeavor.  Nate was recently featured on the front page of the Oklahoman last week and was the graduation speaker for his class in which he did a wonderful job.

It is a wonderful act for each of you to offer your support and I want you to know that we respect and admire you for taking just a little time to donate to this cause. 

Crowdfunding is about lots of small donations making a whole!

We are still hoping people will get the idea that making small donations works out to a big donation for SUB.  Please pass this idea around; we need to keep this dream alive!

Summer is Coming!

May 17, 2016

In one week our Seniors at Sooner Upward Bound graduate from High School and we will be there.

In four weeks our Summer Academy begins. 50 young people from Oklahoma City will come to OU and begin the adventure of a lifetime.

We are hoping for the best and hoping our students get a wonderful graduation gift!

We are looking for organizations motivated to donate.  One of our hopes is that at the end of this year student groups will consider donating their surplus budgets to Sooner Upward Bound.  

We also hope to get in contact with Upward Bound alumni and make vital connections through our local networks.

Anyway you can share our cause is one step closer to our goal!

Here we go!
