The Oakwood Annual Fund is the concerted philanthropic effort of Oakwood University alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends like you, who make an immediate impact year after year on Oakwood University and the lives of our students. This effort is one way the Oakwood community collectively shows its commitment to our unique mission.

These contributions, large and small, enable Oakwood University to continue to raise academic standards and bolster the quality of education offered to students. Your operating gifts benefit Oakwood students by strengthening academic programs, supporting spiritual life, choirs, and athletics, funding student scholarships, constructing and renovating academic and student focused spaces, building the OU endowment, and so much more!

The Oakwood Annual Fund Campaign runs from July 1st -June 30th every year. If we missed you during the Fall Phonathon, please join us for the Blue & Gold Challenge that starts Alumni Weekend and closes midnight, June 30th of each year. The Blue & Gold Challenge is designed to channel the dedication of our alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends to complete your Oakwood Annual Fund  gift every year by midnight, June 30th and show your OU Blue & Gold Pride!

Together, we can make a difference and invest in the next generation of prOUd graduates for service to God and humanity!
