What are the differences in the "SWOSU Foundation, Inc." and the "SWOSU Alumni Association, Inc."?

Simply put, the Foundation raises funds to benefit SWOSU, and the Alumni Association "raises friends" to benefit SWOSU.Each organization is a separate legal entity---a 501 (c) (3)--from the university. Each is a public charity and each works to strengthen SWOSU.The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees, while the Alumni Association is governed by a Board of Directors.The staff who work for both organizations are "shared" by them and by the university under annually-reviewed and renewed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs).
