What does my money do?

Gifts to The Owens Fund help sustain vital Owens needs. Your gift helps fund financial aid, instructional supplies, laboratory equipment, cutting-edge technology and many other program needs. These all play an enormous role in helping Owens prepare students for successful employment or continuing on to complete a bachelor’s degree. Since 2002, the Owens Community College Foundation has awarded over $5 million in scholarship and program funding, enabling hundreds of students to realize their academic dreams and career goals. Since more than 75% of Owens graduates remain local following graduation, the education and training they receive at Owens is a tremendous investment in, and asset to, communities throughout Northwest Ohio. Thanks to Owens’ affordable tuition rates, your charitable dollars impact more students for a longer period of time. Donating to Owens Community College is a wise investment.
