Your gift to the OWU Parents Fund helps enhance your student’s college experience while increasing your involvement in the university.

Maximizing Your Student’s Education

Whether you’re a parent or grandparent of a current student or a former student, your support has a direct and lasting impact. Tuition and fees account for only 47% of the cost of an OWU education, so thank you for you considering a gift beyond tuition.

Why We Need Your Help

Gifts from OWU parents help to maintain the university's position as a leader in higher education, while providing a special vote of confidence in the work being done.

OWU makes every effort to keep the dream of a top-tier college education affordable, particularity during a challenging economic climate. Since tuition cannot fully cover the cost of educating students, private support makes all the difference.

  • Financial aid is the key to creating an affordable OWU today, tomorrow, and forever. Your support makes the difference in:
  • Recruiting talented high-need applicants.
  • Meeting the full financial needs of all admitted students.
  • Keeping tuition affordable.
  • Holding down student debt.
  • Maintaining the budget discipline necessary for a sustainable future.
