Each year, thousands of alumni, parents and friends support the Oxy Fund and make an immediate impact with their giving.

Gifts to the Oxy Fund are critically important to student life and wellness, academics, and every other aspect of the unique Oxy experience, from financial aid and faculty research to athletics and the arts. Unrestricted annual gifts provide approximately 4% of the College's operational budget, underwriting expenses across all departments, programs and organizations.

When we say that every gift matters, we mean it. Here are some ways your Oxy Fund gift provides immediate support across campus:

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Oxy is committed to meeting 100% of families’ demonstrated financial need. Gifts to financial aid and current-year scholarships provide promising students access to an Oxy education, regardless of their financial means, and allow students to focus on making the most of their Oxy experience.




Student & Faculty Experiences

The Oxy Fund enables students and faculty to do their best and most innovative work, supporting life-changing experiences outside of the classroom including internships, fellowships, study abroad, and undergraduate research.




Inclusive Campus Life

Gifts to the Oxy Fund help advance justice, equity, inclusion and diversity at Oxy, supporting campus-wide opportunities, new recruitment strategies to attract a diverse student body and faculty, and events that promote a sense of belonging for people of all identities represented on campus.




Innovation & Immediate Needs

The Oxy Fund provides reliable and flexible funds that allow the College to address pressing needs, seize unexpected opportunities and capitalize on innovative new ideas. Annual support ensures Oxy will remain adaptable, resilient and a leader in the liberal arts for generations to come.
