About

Are you all in for OCU?

Last year we asked you what makes you #TrueBlueOCU, and so many answered the call. Alumni, faculty, staff, friends, parents, and students celebrated our beloved University - a community effort bringing in over $200,000 for our inaugural Giving Day!

We are asking once again for you to join us - are you all in? Gifts to #TrueBlueOCU are immediately transformative, funding scholarships and enhancing resources necessary for student success. Whether you want to give directory to the OCU Fund or to scholarships in the area that made the greatest impact on you, your gift makes a difference now.

Give today and be counted on April 29!
