It’s simple: Ohio Wesleyan University—and our students—need your help.

College is expensive. Despite efforts to keep costs low, a gap exists between tuition and other sources of income and the actual cost of educating an OWU student. That’s where your gift comes into play. From increasing the availability of scholarships and making improvements on campus to supporting community-building activities and enhancing extracurricular opportunities, your donation makes a tangible difference in the lives of current and future students.

When you give, you join a circle of support formed by alumni, family, friends, faculty, and staff who care deeply about providing the best possible and affordable education for tomorrow’s world leaders and citizens.

Return on Investment

Gifts to Ohio Wesleyan provide transformational experiences:

  • Access to a quality education. Students’ dreams of attending OWU become reality when the financial load is lightened.
  • Home sweet home. Upgrades and improvements to our residence halls have a direct bearing on students’ academic experience. Check out the exciting renovation of Stuyvesant Hall and the improvements to Welch Hall during your next campus visit.
  • Protecting the planet. Your support enables OWU to implement energy efficient and environmentally conscious practices on campus.
  • All in the family. Supporting out-of-classroom/office activities, such as the Day on the JAY, builds community and enriches the experience of all who live, study, and work at Ohio Wesleyan.
  • Winning teams. Your generous support of Team OWU is motivating to our scholar-athletes; provides greater opportunities for them to compete, succeed, and win; and continues the tradition of excellence in OWU athletics.
  • Global opportunities. When students have academic interests coupled with the chance to study and conduct research on six continents and more than 30 countries, they discover what is truly at the core of a liberal arts education.

Your support makes these accomplishments possible and more. Every dollar you donate goes toward strengthening OWU as an excellent academic institution. If you’re a graduate of OWU, you benefit from these improvements, too, as the value of your degree increases.

Now, more than ever before, private philanthropy enables OWU to think and act strategically, always keeping an eye toward the future. Thriving in today’s fast-paced global society means being a step ahead—anticipating the “next step” in the educational journeys of our students.

If you have a degree, you know how a college education can change lives and open doors. As we help OWU students realize their dreams, we want avenues of access to stretch before them while they manage college costs, settle into life at OWU, enjoy newly renovated facilities, and take advantage of challenging courses, Theory-to-Practice learning opportunities, and Travel-Learning experiences.

When you make a donation to Ohio Wesleyan, your gift resonates for a long time to come, providing transformational experiences, changing lives, and reinforcing the university’s place as a vibrant, innovative fixture in the community. The future will be here before we know it. Leave your mark today.
