Help OKWU go further by contributing to OKWU Give Week!
In 2020, we created #OKWUGiveDay to celebrate the generosity of the OKWU community and to support the future of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. This year, we have decided to keep the fun going with OKWU Give Week!
On April 8-12, we are asking our family of alumni and friends to come together and support the Annual Fund and secure a $100,000 matching gift toward the renovation of Wesley Hall!
With your help, we can accomplish these goals and make an immediate tangible impact on the lives of current and future OKWU students.
April 8-12, 2024
Save the date!

When using a credit card, the university pays a percentage fee which is deducted from the donation. (i.e. A $5,000 donation would be $4,875.00 after fees.)
