Gifts to Increase the Emergency Needs Fund contribute to:
Bishop Spark: The Challenge of Change
180 Donors - $18,872 Donated

So far in the 2020-21 academic year, OWU has already processed 78 special circumstance requests for financial aid compared to 82 total requests that were processed all last year. This increasing need is a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it also represents the growing financial challenges that many of our students faced even before the pandemic. Additionally, OWU’s cumulative cost to safely reopen campus is approximately $1,000 per student, or about $1.5 million. 

Every bit counts—help us raise $14,260, which is 1% of reopening costs! 

*Gifts to this fund will help alumni reach their class gift goals, too!

Thank you for supporting emergency needs!

Wow! Thank you to all the donors who came together to ensure Ohio Wesleyan is equipped with resources to ignite change and keep campus safe for students. We are counting up the totals and will have more to share in the coming days, but please enjoy this small token of students' appreciation below!
