BW Annual Giving

A little goes a long way at Baldwin Wallace. When you make a gift to the University, no matter the size, you join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support Baldwin Wallace Annual Giving each year.

Every gift makes a difference. Make yours today.

What is Annual Giving?

Annual Giving contributions help bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the increasing cost of operating the University, as well as provide support for programs that enhance the overall student experience.

Last year, 4,000 alumni and friends made gifts to the University. Collectively, those gifts contributed nearly $1.5 million to programs which enhance the quality of our students' education and provide new opportunities for growth.

What does my money support?

Annual Giving dollars support a wide variety of projects and programs around campus, including:

  • Student Financial Aid
  • Student Government and Organized Campus Activities
  • Social and Cultural Events
  • Student Services and Internship Opportunities
  • Exceptional Staff and Faculty Development
  • Institutional Support and Maintenance

Best of all, the BW Annual Giving Program allows you the flexibility to support what matters most to YOU by designating your gift. Honor your degree or career field by supporting one of seven NEW divisional scholars funds. Encourage the spirit of student philanthropy by giving to the YJ4L scholarship. Or, provide much needed unrestricted support to our BW Fund and allow the University to apply your gift to the area of greatest need, from student projects to equipment purchases to library acquisitions.

If you are not sure where you would like to designate your gift, or if you have questions regarding giving opportunities, please feel free to contact us at (440) 826-2135 or
