The O.A.K.S. Campaign

Opportunity and Knowledge Strengthened

WU campus

Your support has left a lasting legacy, and The O.A.K.S. Campaign has built upon our incredible foundation and strengthened our future—and the future of all the students yet to find their higher purpose through our higher education.

As private institutions face numerous challenges, Waynesburg University is working hard to adapt to changing financial times and ensure that this important institution remains healthy and strong for centuries to come. This five-year comprehensive fundraising initiative, which concluded at the end of 2020, aimed to double the 92 endowed funds we managed at the start of the Campaign, in the form of additional endowments and major gifts. Please stay tuned in the coming weeks, as we unveil some of the final totals.

Thank you to all of our O.A.K.S. donors!
