It's time for a #GivingTuesday Challenge with the Owens $5K Race Event!

Give now!

Owens will strive to raise $5,000 in one day on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. All monies raised on this day will go to support the Student Emergency Assistance Fund for Toledo and Findlay students.

Student Emergency Assistance Fund

Owens promotes the achievement of our students. We understand that to build success in the classroom, a student must maintain, as much as possible, stability in their life outside of school. In rare occasions, short-term personal financial matters may arise that could possibly prevent our students from being successful. The Student Emergency Assistance Fund was established to help these students when in need.

Eligible students may apply for up to $500 in emergency assistance, to offset costs on non-academic related expenses. The process to access student emergency funds is handled through the Oserve Office in coordination with the Owens Foundation. For more information please visit our Emergency Assistance webpage or contact the Toledo or Findlay Oserve Offices at (567) 661-7378.

Your participation could also help us receive a matching gift from the Toledo Community Foundation during GivingTuesdayNWO.

This 24-hour $5K event does not require running shoes – only your willingness to make a gift no matter how small or large. Please join Owens supporters on Nov. 28 and invest in the success of Owens students.

On Your Mark... Get Set... Give!
