Creative - Oklahoma State is using life insurance policies on big donors to guarantee future funding. What do you suppose the premium is for Boone Pickens. Heck, if they want, ISU can take out 10 million on me?
this is not new or creative, they are some very specific gifting and esate planning issues that provide for this funding mechanism.
As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs
OSU AD: We need to add more Luxury Boxes to the stadium....but we just don't have the funds.
Alum Director: Well, I have noticed that one of our policyholders, Rosemary, is looking a little worn these days. Nasty cough...
OSU AD: Wonderful, slip some kurari into her evening tea.
Alum Director: Kurari is detectable...
OSU AD: Damn....how about just injecting some air into her bloodstream?
Alum Director: That will work! We should have the money by the end of the 3rd quarter!

It is a great way to go about fundraising if there is enough money today to pay the premiums and go about business as usual. I would love to see ISU doing great $$$ wise today and be able to take whole life out on the big donors.
Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
