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, particularly 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.
