Forever 10

Notice: This Association is independent of and not affiliated with Oakwood University. This Association may not and does not raise funds for or on behalf of Oakwood University. This Association raises funds for alumni activities that the Association sponsors. The Association also raises funds to donate directly to students who now attend, will attend, or have attended Oakwood University to provide assistance with educational expenses.


Everyone is excited  about OUAA’s “game changer” initiative called Forever 10.   It’s simply a minimum $10 per month recurring giving program that everyone can do. That calculates to only 33 cents a day.  Little becomes much when we ALL give something. There’s strength in numbers!   This systematic alumni giving program is already providing consistent and sustainable funding throughout the year.  Donors doing Forever 10 have helped fund  our  newest and highly successful engagement and connectivity events such as the New Student Orientation Frozen Yogurt Event and the Midnight Pancakes on the Lawn.

All gifts are tax deductible and your national membership dues are waived in your Forever 10 gift.  90% of your monthly donation supports the three main mission initiatives of the association 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.  

Many of the honored classes are helping the alumni association by reaching out to their former classmates to donate. Join this giving movement.  Our Forever 10 goal is to sign up over 2,000 donors thereby providing nearly $250,000 year after year forever.
