About

As we enter our third annual Defi the Odds Campaign, we wish you warm greetings from Defiance College!  We are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and we think it may no longer be the train of COVID-19.  Our campus has navigated the pandemic very well, and classes have been in person since the Fall of 2020.

We hope that as your circumstances permit, you will consider a tax-deductible contribution to Defiance College which will make a difference in the lives of our students. Each of us have passions and we ask that you make your Defi the Odds gift to an area that you are most passionate about or lending your support to the college’s area of greatest need.

Thank you in advance for your support! Together we can make a difference!
