2020 Celebrating a Transformational Gift

Oklahoma State University and alumni Kayleen and Larry Ferguson announced a $50 million gift from the Ferguson Family Foundation that transformed the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources in a variety of ways, including a new name. 

The college was renamed the Ferguson College of Agriculture in recognition of the gift, which was among the largest in OSU’s nearly 130-year history. 

The donation created a $25 million endowment for the college’s operations and designated $25 million to kick-start a fundraising campaign for an innovative agricultural research and teaching building.
