Last Call to OALP Alums- Participate in the Noble Challenge
As the Chairman of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Advisory Council- I wanted to share this word with all the alums of the program as we near the end of 2022-

The Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Program is seeking assistance from our alumni to meet the Noble Foundation Challenge Grant. We appreciate those who have already contributed, but we have not met the match yet. You may send your donation via check made payable to OSU Foundation/OALP to 127 Noble Research Center, Stillwater, OK 74078-3030. 

Credit cards may be used for your contribution by calling the OSU Foundation at 800-622-4678 and designate your gift for the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Fund 21-35700 or online at https://osugiving.com where you will: 1) click the “Give” button in the upper right-hand corner, 2) click the search button, 3) type 21-35700 in the search box and click the search button, 4) click the orange “Give” after the name and description for the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Fund, and 5) enter the amount and other billing information. To meet the Noble Challenge- your gift must be in by December 31st.

As you may know- the Noble Foundation has been one of the original in state donors of the program and have operated this "match challenge" with the alum since some of the earliest classes. Their encouragement to keep alums engaged is one of the great things they have done in helping OALP develop leaders for rural Oklahoma.
