Oiler Up, Give Back on #GivingTuesdayNow

This campaign ended on May 05, 2020, but you can still make a gift to University of Findlay by clicking here!

Join the global day of #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5, 2020 and Oiler Up, Give Back for University of Findlay students

The University of Findlay sincerely hopes that you and your family are well and keeping your spirits up throughout the global threat of COVID-19. While this unprecedented time has restricted our traditional ways of coming together, there are opportunities for us all to come together to support one another.  

We hope you will join us for a global day of unity and giving on May 5, 2020. We are aligning our Oiler Up, Give Back Day of Giving, originally scheduled for March 19, with #GivingTuesdayNow, an international emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. When you make a gift to the University of Findlay on May 5, your support will help prepare the next generation of Oilers to go on to make discoveries, start new businesses, inspire others, and even save lives. 

As we hear from UF alumni all over the country making a difference on the front lines of this crisis, we know that our mission to prepare students for meaningful lives and productive careers is more important now than ever.  

Supporting the Findlay Fund, Findlay Forward Scholarships, or the UF Student Emergency Fund on or before May 5 is the best way to make an immediate impact as it gives university leadership the flexible funding to both answer our most urgent needs and take advantage of unforeseen opportunities. As always, you may also choose to support your area of passion. Your gift joins many others, big and small, to help prepare the next generation of Oilers in just one day.

Double Your Impact!

When you make a gift of any size to any area, $100 will be donated to the Findlay Fund, up to $70,000. This match has been generously provided by a UF donor who believes in Oilers everywhere.

Your gift today will help support UF students in so many ways. Here's a small sample:

  • student scholarships
  • vital student services
  • undergraduate research and clinical opportunities
  • study abroad
  • leadership opportunities
  • maintaining and updating campus facilities, classroom technology and lab equipment

In just 24-hours you can make a difference and help fuel the next generation of Oilers!
