Your annual gift makes a difference every day

Your gift to Ohio Wesleyan's Annual Giving Program helps OWU to be nimble in responding to rapidly evolving needs. Whether you support the Ohio Wesleyan Fund, an academic department (or two or three!), Team OWU athletics, or the President's Circle, your gift helps current students chart meaningful paths at OWU. When you give through Ohio Wesleyan to what you care deeply about, you're helping the next generation of Bishops develop the skills necessary to succeed in today's global society.

Powered by gifts of all sizes from alumni, families, and friends like you, the Annual Giving Program propels our students forward—as creative writers, data analysts, microbiologists, and activists. Your gift ensures our students have the fullest experience possible: a rich learning environment, passionate faculty, and eye-opening opportunities—from scholarships to the OWU Connection to leadership roles, and more.

Your support matters. Whether you can give $25 or $25,000, your contribution is a vote of confidence in the Ohio Wesleyan liberal arts education that prepares well-rounded graduates who are ready for their next step, whether that be graduate or professional school, meaningful careers, or volunteer service.

Thank you for giving through Ohio Wesleyan!

What's the Impact of Giving?

Your gift at a size that is meaningful to you can have a real impact for Ohio Wesleyan students today - these are just a few examples of the ways that your gift can make a difference. Monthly giving is one way that you can amplify the impact of your gift, while providing a sustainable source of support for OWU.

OWU in the News

Former scholarship recipients say:

“As someone who was admitted to Ohio Wesleyan without any family financial assistance, I learned to appreciate every contribution made toward making my education possible.  If I had not been offered an Ohio Wesleyan grant, it’s safe to say that I would not have been an OWU student. This is what sets Ohio Wesleyan apart from other schools:  creating the opportunity and the means for students to obtain a quality education.”

--Alina Ruzmetova ’11

“Without the scholarships and financial aid I was given while at OWU, I don’t think I would be in the position I am today. I am fortunate to have my education and, more importantly, the leadership experiences I gained while I was a student at OWU.”

--Doreen DeLaney Crawley ’91
Chief Human Resources and Administrative Officer, Grange Insurance
