BW Event Cancellations and Postponements Due to COVID-19 
Updated on May 5, 2020

 

Greetings from BW – We are disappointed that we must cancel and postpone several upcoming events presented by The Center for Philanthropy & Alumni Engagement now through June 2020. BW is responding to recommendations from the Governor of the State of Ohio along with local and national health agencies to reduce the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19, commonly known as novel Coronavirus.

To that end, we are postponing the upcoming 50th Annual Reverse Raffle originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020 and the Class of 1970 50th Reunion – Friday and Saturday, May 15 and May 16 and Alumni Encore – Saturday, May 16. The Class of 1970 Reunion and Alumni Encore will be rescheduled for May 2021 while the Reverse Raffle will be rescheduled at a later date to be determined. Details here about tickets and refunds for the Reverse Raffle

We are canceling the following events:

  • MBA Association Master's Masters Golf Outing on Monday, June 8

You can read the full details at: bw.edu/coronavirus 

As part of our goal to decrease the number of instances that require our community members to gather in groups, we have canceled all on campus and off campus events and restricted commercial carrier travel for all BW employees.

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.
