What Students are saying about #OKWUGiveDAy:

Zoee Granville

“Whether it be a donation of time, money, or prayer, I sincerely appreciate every donation given to OKWU. As I reflect on these past two semesters, I am reminded of last year’s chapel theme: multiply. Upon donating to OKWU, you have invested in students to multiply the kingdom of God in whatever field they enter and for that, I am so grateful!”

– Zoee Granville

Aubrie Owen

“Oklahoma Wesleyan has given me much more than an education. Our university equips us to be leaders who follow Christ and makes every effort to ‘develop the whole person,’ as President Dunn would say. Your donations make it possible for students like me to grow in Christ and in our future careers. Thank you for your generosity and for making it possible to attend OKWU!”

– Aubrie Owen

Ben Bender

“Thank you so much for investing in the life-giving community OKWU provides. I am amazed how much God has used my campus experience to humble and grow me in life and leadership. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to learn more of Christ, His Word, myself, and how I can impact culture with the lordship of Christ. It would not have been possible without your gracious contribution.” 

– Ben Bender

2021 Charitable Gift Advantage

Did you know you can save money on your taxes with a charitable gift this year?

This year, a special COVID-19 tax provision allows charitable gifts to be deducted from your federal income taxes even if you don’t itemize deductions – up to $300 for an individual and up to $600 for couples filing jointly – which means your donation on #OKWUGiveDay can reduce your federal tax bill. For donors who itemize deductions, the COVID-19 relief bill suspends the 60% of adjusted gross income limitation on cash gifts in 2021.

Your gift is important to OKWU and lowers your taxes. This is the year to contribute to OKWU and make a difference in the lives of our students.
