Mission of the Fund for BW

The Fund for BW is dedicated to furthering Baldwin Wallace University’s mission of being a foundation of lifelong learning and a diverse, innovative, and caring educational community that empowers individuals to realize their potential for a life well-lived. By enhancing student financial support, academic programs, co-curricular experiences, and University sustainability, the Fund for BW plays a vital role in our students’ pursuit of personal and professional excellence.

Why Give to Baldwin Wallace?

With your gift to the Fund for BW, you offer support for the greatest needs and emerging priorities of our students and institution. You provide immediate access to financial and educational resources that our students depend on to achieve success. The Fund for BW is the cornerstone of the Yellow Jacket experience, offering support to top priorities including:

  • Scholarships and financial aid
  • Research and internship opportunities
  • Upgraded technology and campus facilities
  • Community service programs and experiences
  • Student programming and campus life opportunities
  • Library resources
  • Top-rated faculty recruitment and retention

Why Your Gift to the Fund for BW Matters

The Fund for BW helps to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the increasing cost of educating our students. Every gift, of any amount, has a major impact on the University. During the 2022-2023 academic year, over 3,100 alumni and friends contributed more than $4.8 million in annual support.

High alumni donor participation rates can also impact collegiate rankings, boost the value of a BW degree, and encourage corporate and foundation partners to invest in BW’s future. Participation from every YJ4L truly makes a lasting impact.
