Cardinals Care: COVID-19 Response

This campaign ends on June 30 at 11:59PM EDT

Within our Otterbein community, we have seen and felt the impact of COVID-19 as it continues to affect all of us. We've been in touch with our students and families affected by the precautions against COVID-19, as well as our community partners. We know the need is great and will only grow. We are thankful for those who have selflessly expressed a desire to give.  

Here's how you can help: 

Support: Show your support and help take care of Otterbein students during these uncertain and challenging times. These targeted areas will have the most immediate and direct impact in the lives of our students.     

  • Student Emergency Fund: Provide funding to Otterbein students who are challenged to afford housing, transportation, basic needs, and required resources for learning as a result of protective measures resulting from COVID-19. 
  • Promise House: Keep food on the table. This student-led community resource center includes a food pantry, school supplies and provides a sense of comfort for Otterbein students. 
  • Textbook Affordability: Provide copies of textbooks to the library that can be reserved by Otterbein students who are challenged to afford textbooks. 
  • Counseling Center: Help ensure that any student who needs extra guidance from Otterbein counselors during this time has easy access to it.  
  • Area of Greatest Need: Otterbein is adapting operations dramatically to best serve students. Your support will give leadership additional resources to meet our most pressing needs.
