Fundraising Priorities

Fundraising Priorities

What was true in 1887 remains true today: Oxy's first priority is our students.

All gifts, large or small, for programs or professorships, buildings or books, scholarships or scoreboards, support our students. And every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference. Every Oxy student benefits from the generosity of previous generations.

Today, more than three-quarters of Oxy students depend on some form of financial aid. Student scholarships have always been Occidental's top fundraising priority because tuition has never raised sufficient funds to meet the full cost of an Oxy education.

Of course, there are many other opportunities for thoughtful gifts that can have a major impact on students—and on one of the country's top liberal arts colleges. We'd be happy to talk to you about the possibilities.
