Calling All Bishops

This campaign ended on March 19, 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, near and far.

You may realize that we had long planned a giving challenge for this week – Major Madness: The Rematch. Given the current serious situation, we are instead Calling All Bishops to come forward and support Ohio Wesleyan students. The heart of our new message remains the same: Supporting OWU students is what it’s all about—it’s who we are as a community.

We ask you to join us as we support our students, who are suddenly experiencing a shift to remote learning and a departure from campus in the middle of spring semester. Your gift of any size to the Ohio Wesleyan Fund will directly impact students as they navigate the pandemic. Your thoughtful dollars will:

  • Help provide laptops for students who need them;
  • Equip faculty with the resources to teach online;
  • Help students get to their homes safely;
  • Provide students who remain on campus a healthy living-learning environment;
  • And much more.

Looking for additional ways to help? Post a supportive message or video to students on our Alumni Association Facebook page. Our alumni network is the best. Let’s make sure our students know we have their backs!

Though we may be separated by many miles, or simply six feet away through social distancing, Bishops are always together in spirit.

If you'd like to help spread the word about Calling All Bishops with your Bishop network, please visit our Advocacy Dashboard for tools to help. Thank you!
