Since 2004, Team OWU has helped support Ohio Wesleyan student-athletes and athletic programs thanks to the passion and loyal support of our generous donors.
Team OWU, the annual philanthropic arm of Ohio Wesleyan Athletics, provides one-third of all operating costs for our varsity athletic programs. As we strive to win NCAC Championships, the NCAC All-Sport Trophy and National Championships, your support is more crucial now than it has ever been.
With the rising costs of operating a large athletic department, your support helps alleviate travel costs, equipment upgrades, and player development that otherwise wouldn’t be available. With over 500 student-athletes, competing on 23 varsity teams, the philanthropic support our donors provide is crucial to our success both regionally and nationally.
Welcome to another year of Ohio Wesleyan Athletics. We are excited that you have chosen to follow, engage and support our 23 varsity programs at OWU. Whether you or your student graduated in 1945 or 2015, we are grateful for your continued support of the Battling Bishops.
With more than 500 student-athletes, competing in 23 varsity sports, we are constantly seeking the best and brightest from around the country to don the red and black. This year’s incoming freshman class is comprised of 267 high school athletes, 117 of which were captains of their respective teams. Of those high school athletes, 184 of them are continuing their athletic careers as a Bishop. This speaks volumes to the quality of student-athletes that we attract at Ohio Wesleyan. As the market for student-athletes becomes increasingly more competitive, we are having to work harder, longer and become more creative with how we position Ohio Wesleyan Athletics in the mind of our national audience. This is where your support is needed.
Team OWU is made up of our generous alumni, parents and friends that assist in funding our varsity programs. As a supporter of Team OWU, you provide the financial resources that our coaches need to make a positive impact on the lives of our student-athletes. Your philanthropy provides much more than new uniforms and team meals; your generosity makes sure that the pride and tradition of Ohio Wesleyan Athletics is carried well beyond the field, court or pool. You are ensuring that OWU is producing well rounded student-athletes that can not only compete in the 4x100 relay, but can also run a non-profit organization providing meals to the homeless in our community.
We hope that you will support Ohio Wesleyan Athletics in the way that is most meaning for you this year. We have a full slate of contests both home and away this season and hope you will join us in supporting our wonderful student-athletes.
See you in the stands,
