University of Findlay students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and the local community joined together last week to support the annual #OilerUpGiveBack Day of Giving. Donors came through in a big way to collectively raise over $200,00 from 750 gifts in just 24-hours!
Marcia Sloan Latta, Ed.D., vice president for university advancement said, “Once again, supporters of UF stepped up in a big way to directly help students get an outstanding education. No matter what program or project they give to, it positively impacts our students and makes UF a stronger institution.”
Individual gifts as well as matched funds by generous donors will help provide students with scholarships, support University growth, and provide a buffer for crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding and support went to many areas across UF including, but not limited to, the Findlay Fund, Findlay Forward Scholarships, and the UF Student Emergency Fund.
“The impact of this special 24-hours will benefit each and every student while helping our faculty and staff further our mission to prepare students for meaningful lives and productive careers,” Kelly Warner, director of annual giving, stated. “To have more than 750 gifts supporting the University of Findlay and our students is phenomenal. The generosity of Oiler Nation never ceases to amaze me.”
