Pres with students

I know you love Southeastern Oklahoma State University just as much as I do. We want Southeastern to be the launching point for our students’ lives and careers. These are the stories of our graduates and friends: Southeastern is where their stories began.

For all the good our faculty, staff and students do, there are times we need a boost of funds, a boost of information, a boost of technology, a boost of influence, even a boost of confidence. Just like you, we turn to our family and friends at those times.

The Presidential Partners are in a unique position to be of service, because their donations are the most flexible of any donations to our campus, and that makes them very valuable.

Please join me as we move forward, keeping Southeastern the remarkable education institution in southeast Oklahoma. Our heritage is worth safekeeping, and our legacy should be honoring the past and molding the future for the greater good. Please join me as a Presidential Partner, and together we’ll work toward a bright future for Southeastern.

Sean Burrage
President

Who We Are

Presidential Partners are the elite supporters of The Southeastern Foundation. They are from every walk of life, but they share a belief that Southeastern’s capabilities are valuable to our students and our region. Partners are active, optimistic people who are determined to make things happen.

How Presidential Partners Make a Difference

The unrestricted donations of the Partners are invested back into The Southeastern Foundation and used for projects and expenses that support students and Southeastern. These include scholarships for outstanding students, faculty and staff professional development, special projects for improving campus facilities, recruiting students and faculty, meeting short-term equipment needs, and hosting campus promotional events.
For instance, Presidential Partners support the True Blue Ambassadors, as they work to create service opportunities that put Southeastern in a very positive light to prospective students and the general public.

How to Be a Presidential Partner

When you donate at least $1,000 yearly to the Presidential Partners fund, you are a Partner to our students and our President. The Partners celebrate their good work each year at the Presidential Partners Dinner, where they meet the scholarship recipients, and learn more about the Partners’ accomplishments. Please use this form to join or call Kyle Stafford at (580) 745-3079.
