Your support makes Oxy stories possible.

For more than 130 years, bright, curious and idealistic students have come to Occidental to experience a distinctive, innovative liberal arts education against the global backdrop of Los Angeles.

Gifts large and small directly support student scholarships, hands-on research for undergraduates, professional internships, and our remarkable faculty, high-impact programs, athletics, and student organizations. They allow us to maintain as well as expand our beautiful hillside campus, bringing innovation and state-of-the-art spaces for our students.  

Specifically, gifts to the Oxy Fund allow the College to thrive every day, and give our faculty and students the ability to learn and explore more deeply. Gifts to our endowment, including planned gifts, are critical in ensuring that we can continue to bring the best and brightest students to Oxy and continue to support our mission of providing a total educational experience of the highest quality, preparing our students to thrive in an ever-more complex world.
