Give a gift that will impact a life forever!

Think about your years at Oakwood. Do you remember the fun you had, the friends you made, the obstacles you were able to overcome? We want your memories to be fond ones, and we encourage you to help current and future students have similar experiences they will remember for a lifetime.

Isn’t it time you give something back to your alma mater? Giving back to Oakwood can come in many forms; time, talent, and treasure keep the University thriving. Each gift raises our alumni participation rate, which is a key factor used in national rankings of colleges and universities. Higher rankings increase the reputation of the University, resulting in more widespread support and an increase in the value of your degree. Any and all of these things will continue the “Oakwood story” for generations to come.

We have made it easy for you to give TODAY online in several ways. One way we encourage you to join our new and exciting giving program called
FOREVER 10.   You can simply click Forever 10 giving link:

 All donations fund your alumni association’s 3 mission initiatives which are:

  • OUR STUDENTS – Through Scholarships
  • OUR ALUMNI  &  PRE-ALUMNI – Through Engagement & Connectivity Programs
  • CAPITAL CAMPAIGNS* – April 16, 2018, final gift – $140K for Treehouse Student Center project. At the request of OU, we no longer raise capital funds for the University. 

If you work for a company that matches charitable gifts, you may even be able to double or triple the impact of your gift. Please include the name of your employer on the donation form. Not sure whether your company will match your charitable giving, give us your employer’s name and we will check the matching gifts database and contact you with further details. 

Thank you for all that you continue to do to assist the Oakwood University Alumni Association in its mission. Your gift plays a vital role in ensuring that current students have the same opportunities you did.
