Gratitude abounds during Philanthropy Week

Oglethorpe is hosting its first-ever Philanthropy Week—a campus-wide celebration of philanthropy and its significant impact on the university.  How are we celebrating?

Oglethorpe students and alumni sent a special “thank you” message to faculty and staff to share why they are grateful for them and how they’ve made a difference:

Signs popped up across campus sharing Oglethorpe’s recent historic fundraising successes:

  • photo-nov-16-3-48-59-pm
  • photo-nov-16-3-50-47-pm
  • photo-nov-16-3-54-03-pm

A week-long social media scavenger hunt led students in search of “gift tag” clues on campus buildings—and to learn more about the many donors over the years whose support made those buildings possible:

  • philanthropy-week-2016-12
  • philanthropy-week-2016-27
  • philanthropy-week-2016-17
  • philanthropy-week-2016-16


The celebration continues throughout the week, culminating with a community-wide OU Thanksday event on Friday!

You too can show your support for our students and the entire OU community with a contribution of any amount to the Oglethorpe Annual Fund.
