(Tulsa-AP) -- A Tulsa philanthropist is offering $10-million to the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa, if voters approve an economic development sales tax proposal.

The Schusterman family is promising the money to add library, classroom and conference room space to the OU-Tulsa campus.

Tulsa County voters must approve all four parts of the $885-millionr Vision 2025 plan for OU to get the money.

The Vision 2025 plan calls for a one-cent sales tax for economic development, education and parks and recreation improvements.

The proposal goes before voters on September 9th.
