All in for Oberlin 2020

This campaign ended on April 24, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Oberlin College by clicking here!

With everything that is going on in the world, Oberlin needs its community! 

This year, join us—virtually—to support Oberlin’s fourth annual day of giving. Together we can make a measurable impact in the lives of Oberlin students. Every act of generosity is vital to ensuring financial aid, academic programs, experiential learning and the longevity of an Oberlin education. 

Let’s rally from a space of gratitude and celebrate what is truly good and meaningful about your experience at Oberlin. We all believe that our students deserve to be championed, and the mission of the College and Conservatory is as valid today as ever. 

This year’s All in for Oberlin includes a very special giving challenge—1,000 gifts unlock $100,000 from a very generous donor who wants to amplify the impact of your gift in this challenging time and encourage others to be all in.

Share this day on social media with your Oberlin community. Use #AllinforOberlin in your messages and—maybe, just maybe—issue a challenge of your own! All in for Oberlin is a rallying moment for our entire community. It’s a day to reinforce our importance in the world and our permanence.

Today, we ask you to go All In with your Obie community and designate a gift that will have an immediate impact on the lives of Oberlin students. 

Call 800-693-3167 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm EDT if you have any questions about All in for Oberlin, or if you’d like to make a gift over the phone.
