Thank You!

Baldwin Wallace gratefully recognizes the more than 5,000 donors who make a gift, of any amount, to the University each year. Each of them has their own story and their own reason for giving back, but ALL of them have made a significant impact on BW.

We are forever grateful for their commitment to this University and its future. We wish to express our sincerest thanks to all of the persons and organizations who provide this support.
