Follow Christ, Lead the Way
Big Give a Big Boost for OCU!

The Columbus Foundation 2017 Big Give campaign on October 11th gave a big boost to Ohio Christian University.

Generosity of contributors enables OCU to continue supporting student success and to sustain academic programs that are creating a new generation of faith-filled leaders in many fields of endeavor that contribute to bettering society in local communities and beyond.

The Columbus Foundation amplified the campaign gifts made in support of this work. Ohio Christian raised over $252,000 through your generosity!

OCU’s faculty, staff, and administration extend our heart-felt gratefulness to each of the many contributors in Greater Columbus and central Ohio who chose to support this worthy enterprise!  Thank you!
