Give Week 2024 proved just how strong the OKWU family really is!

Dozens of supporters stepped up and made donations to the Annual Fund. Between the lead gift and the gifts we received during give week, we raised over $205,000!

Each dollar raised represents lives that will change at OKWU. Current and future students will be blessed by the generosity of our greater OKWU family through scholarships, upgraded facilities like the upcoming Wesley Hall renovation, and other necessary campus improvements planned as part of the NOW Campaign.

Thank you for your commitment to Oklahoma Wesleyan University!
