As one of the top higher-education fundraising organizations in the Big 12 Conference, the OSU Foundation started out with one development officer raising a few thousand dollars in 1961. Two years later in 1963, the OSU Foundation raised $106,622. The momentum built as all-time giving totals hit $1 million in 1967 and a second full-time employee was added in 1969. Milestones continued throughout the 1970s, including 1976, when gifts in a single year surpassed $2 million for the first time. Among the highlights of the 1980s was the 1981 announcement of the first $1 million gift, which was provided by Floyd M. "Pete" and Helen L. "Pat" Bartlett of Tulsa. The following year, T. Boone Pickens made his first $1 million gift. He later made the three largest gifts in Oklahoma State University's history, with each totaling $100 million or more. In June 1994, the OSU Foundation launched its first comprehensive campaign, Bringing Dreams to Life which ended in June 2000, surpassing $260 million after an initial goal of $125 million. In December 2007, the OSU Foundation launched a subsequent campaign, Branding Success: The Campaign for Oklahoma State University. More than 100,000 donors helped the campaign exceed its audacious $1 billion goal nearly 15 months ahead of schedule, finishing with $1.2 billion in December 2015. Today, the OSU Foundation stays true to the mission of uniting donor and university passions and priorities to achieve excellence.
