Basketball Locker Room Renovation Project

Yellow Jacket Men's and Women's Basketball has a strong history with 19 trips to the NCAA Tournament, 10 OAC Tournament titles, and numerous individual student athlete awards.  Locker rooms used by these student athletes were last renovated in 1986.  The current locker rooms are very outdated compared to competitors' facilities.  With the movement of BW football to the Packard Athletic Center, space previously used by football is available for use by the basketball teams, including a players' lounge and film room to view previous games and discuss plays.  Click here to learn more.

YJ4L Gives


Every Gift Really Does Make A Difference.

A little goes a long way at Baldwin Wallace. Make a gift and join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support BW each year. All of those gifts add up in a big way.  Last year, more than 4,700 alumni and friends made gifts to the University. Collectively those gifts contributed nearly $1.4 million to BW's budget.

Students Give!

During the 2013-14 academic year, 395 BW students contributed over $5,000 to the YJ4L scholarship fund. With a generous donor match, the YJ4L Gives totaled $10,000. That’s impact!  The funds have been distributed to students with demonstrated financial hardship, making it possible for them to continue their studies at BW. 


Where to Give? 

Support what matters most to YOU.

You can designate your gift to nine annual funds supporting the University and our students, including seven academic scholars funds, the YJ4L scholarship and the BW Fund. Learn more here.

Every gift matters.  Make yours today.
