Using name, image and likeness
To shape their future and better Oklahoma


Who We Are

Oklahoma State supporters working with OSU student-athletes to help maximize name, image and likeness opportunities.

What We Believe

Each Oklahoma State student-athlete has a cause that is dear to heart. Pokes with a Purpose matches OSU student-athletes with local partners of their choosing. When a student-athlete connects with a cause they truly believe in, there is a greater chance of creating a long-term relationship that benefits everyone involved.

Our Partners

Why It Matters

Pokes with a Purpose gives Oklahoma State student-athletes a platform to showcase their community service efforts to future employers and creates an opportunity to use name, image and likeness as a way of building financial resources that can help kickstart entrepreneurial efforts of their own.

Our Reasons

Our Mission

Pairing student-athletes with local charities that enable student-athletes to use their name, image and likeness to raise awareness and funds for causes of their choosing.

The causes benefit from the media exposure and in turn help needy Oklahomans. At the same time, the experience helps student-athletes partner with their community in ways that benefit everyone involved.
