Last year, Women of Vision raised a little over $85,000 to invest on Bison Hill. The group voted during the annual meeting to use that collective gift to fund the installation of blue (safety) phones on campus and establish the WOV scholarship endowment that will impact students attending OBU for years to come.
Since Women of Vision launched in 2015, the group has invested over a quarter million dollars in the life and mission of the University. This collective gift each year not only impacts OBU students and their transformational experience on campus, it also impacts the entire OBU family.
What is Women of Vision?
Women of Vision is a giving circle at OBU that offers a unique opportunity to join other women who desire to create a valuable financial source to support, promote, sustain and enhance the University’s mission. Through the giving circle, individual contributions are pooled, and together, the Circle members decide how the money should be directed on Bison Hill.
Annual Meeting and Luncheon
Current members and alumnae interested in becoming members are invited to the annual luncheon at OBU Geiger Center, Thursday, Nov. 21, at 11 a.m. During the luncheon, OBU projects will be presented and members will vote on the project they would like to fund. To join the giving circle, each member contributes $1,000 ($500 for those who have graduated within the last five years) per year to be used to fund the selected project.
