Today is #OKWUGiveDay! 

We’re on a mission to raise $150K today – will you join us? Make your gift now to help us ensure OKWU’s mission continues to thrive. 

This year, we have 24 hours to bring the future home – and we can’t do it alone! Give Day is a virtual event dedicated to one purpose: generously supporting our OKWU students’ future. It’s when our community of alumni and friends come together to give to OKWU’s Annual Fund.

A generous donor has pledged a matching gift of $15,000 – help us maximize this tremendous kindness! We’re grateful for your generosity in whatever way you give – be it time, money, prayer, or just by helping us spread the word online and in person. Thank you!

What Students are saying about #OKWUGiveDAy:

female student

“Thanks for allowing me to go to such a unique place. I know that I couldn’t get the education, I couldn’t get the spiritual input, I couldn’t get a lot of things that I’ve been able to get here at OKWU anywhere else. It’s a really special place.” 

– Taylor Helmer, Senior, Pre-Physical Therapy

female student

“Financial support has made a huge, huge difference.  I ended up getting the PLS scholarship, which was literally an answer to prayer. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to grow. OKWU has really helped me invest in different relationships, invest in myself. By you giving, whatever it was, you really helped me grow into the woman of God that he’s called me to be.” 

– Summer Smith, Senior, English Education

female student

 “I couldn’t come financially until I applied for the PLS scholarship. Because of my PLS scholarship, I had enough funds to come here and I knew, based on how many doors opened, that God wanted me here… Thank you! Without you, I wouldn’t be able to come to school here.”  

– Gabi Moore, Senior, Elementary Education

Frequently Asked Questions

What is #OKWUGiveDay?

For three years, Give Day has been an opportunity for the larger OKWU community to support student scholarship by giving to OKWU’s Annual Fund. It’s also a day for gratitude by our students to the university’s donors.

Our world has never needed OKWU graduates like it does right now, and your support means more than ever. When you give to #OKWUGiveDay: 

    • You provide scholarships for students and help ensure that an OKWU education is attainable to all. 
    • You help OKWU continue to grow and expand into the future. 
    • You help our students reach their full potential and prepare them to be the next generation of leaders in businesses, ministries, organizations, and communities across the globe.

When is it?

This event takes place March 30, 2022 – but you don’t have to wait until then! You can support our students at any time. Give today and mark your donation “Give Day.”

Who can participate?

Anyone! We encourage all alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends of OKWU to participate by making a gift. Every donation counts, of any size – it’s all together, now!

Where does the money go?

Your donation goes to the OKWU Annual Fund, which helps the university provide scholarships and financial aid to students who might otherwise not be able to attend. You can rest easy that your money is making a difference in the life of an OKWU Eagle.

What if I've already made a gift this year or in the past?

Thank you! You’ve already made a huge difference, and we’re incredibly grateful. If you’re able, we encourage you to donate again during this exciting day – together, we can unlock the matching gift promise and maximize all of our donations.
