Make Your Plans for Bold + Gold! 

BW welcomed a new class of freshmen YJ4Ls to campus on August 26, and the Office of Alumni Engagement looks forward to welcoming alumni for the annual Bold + Gold Festival on October 5, as well as to other events on campus this semester. 

BW's Bold + Gold Festival (October 5): For the second year, the Bold & Gold Festival includes Homecoming, Community and Family Day with a parade, tailgate on the North Quad, and football (BW vs Capital). Morning reunions and "What's Brewing at BW" coffees with deans and departments round out the day. A preview of the day's schedule with link to purchase tickets is available here

YJ4L Spirit of Giving

 

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. A true example of the YJ4L spirit!

Students Supporting Students

BW's Student Giving Council (SGC) helps embrace the YJ4L spirit early and allows students to pay it forward. This program is all about students helping students and seeing firsthand how the power of philanthropy can change lives. Students give through a variety of events during the academic year, whether it’s $5 or $50, and it all adds up to make a difference. Last year, the SGC raised over $7,800 for the YJ4th Year Gift, a student funded scholarship. Together with a generous match from the Grippin Fund, over $10,000 was distributed to seniors in need. Read more here about the most recent recipients and how the philanthropy of their peers enabled them to graduate. 

 

Where to Give? 

Support what matters most to YOU.

You can designate your gift to a variety of annual funds supporting the University and our students, including seven academic scholars funds, the YJ4th Year scholarship described above or area of greatest need. Learn more here.

Every gift matters.  Make yours today.
