2020 Class Gift

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Ohio Wesleyan University by clicking here!

As the world sails uncharted waters during the COVID-19 pandemic, we send our very best wishes to the Ohio Wesleyan community, especially our seniors, near and far.

The Senior Class Gift is a critical step in transitioning into OWU alumni and continuing a long-standing alumni tradition.

The OWU Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating our Bishops. With over 97% of OWU students receiving scholarships and financial aid, it is very important we continue the tradition of philanthropy to ensure that future students benefit from the same experience we did.

Tuition only covers 47% of the actual cost of an OWU education, so gifts from alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, and students, are essential to cover the gap.

Your gift:

  • Directly increases the value of your degree through the U.S. News & World Report
  • Helps support student scholarships for your friends & future Bishops
  • Helps cement your legacy in the Class of 2020, as all participating seniors will be recognized in the donor section of the Commencement program

Help boost OWU’s rankings in U.S. News and World Report. The percentage of alumni who give back to their alma mater (not the amount of the gift!) positively impacts a school’s ranking. This affects the value of your degree as you’re searching for a job and pursuing higher education. We invested four years of our time, dedication, and money into OWU--now it’s time to make it count!

Honor the Class of 2020, receive a senior philanthropy cord for commencement, and have the opportunity to share your appreciation of a member of OWU’s faculty or staff community. 

Lead the charge to be invited to a special donor dinner closer to commencement and recognized as a Leadership level donor in the Commencement program.

Show your gratitude for your OWU experience to be invited to a special donor dinner closer to commencement and recognized as a Leadership level donor in the Commencement program.

We understand that these are uncertain times for everyone, including your families. Any amount you’d feel comfortable giving would be greatly appreciated. 

We hope that you will reflect on your own OWU experience and remember the professors, friendships, and moments that made an impact on you. Your contribution to the 2020 Class Gift is just one of the many ways to celebrate your days at OWU.
