Oakland University has a vast amount of pride as the Golden Grizzlies. We are proud of our student-athletes' accomplishments and our part in helping them to develop into champions. OU is deeply committed to them in the classroom, in competition, and in life - and wholeheartedly support their pursuit of excellence. As we move forward, we ask you to join us in this support by giving to the Golden Grizzlies Athletic Fund (GGAF).
The generous support of our GGAF donors has helped us to build a foundation for success. In our never-ending pursuit of excellence, we look to you for support so that we may continue building upon this and raise our program to new heights. As a donor, your impact on our program will be far-reaching. Our commitment and dedication to our student-athletes is at the heart of all we do and your gift is what will take us to the next level.
We invite you to join us through the GGAF and be a part of #OUrstory as we continue to build champions in the classroom, the community, and in competition. We appreciate your passion for the Golden Grizzlies and would love to have you on our team as our vision for the future becomes a reality.
WEAR THE BEAR!
From Feb. 19-27, OU and rival UDM go head-to-head in the Metro Series Giving Challenge to see who has the most supporters of student success. Be a part of this action and make a gift to the Golden Grizzlies Athletic Fund (GGAF) – any amount helps. Watch Grizz in the video on our campaign page to learn more about this off-court show-down. See the game's stats at www.oakland.edu/givingchallenge.
The GGAF is the official fundraising arm for Oakland University Athletics. It is the most direct way to impact student-athletes and their first-class experience as Golden Grizzlies. Our growth in both dollars and participation is critical to the future of Oakland University Athletics. By making a gift, you help write #OUrstory and assist our student-athletes in becoming champions in the classroom, community, and in competition.
Oakland University Athletics’ 18 Division I varsity sports programs and over 320 student-athletes. Contributions go directly to support our student-athletes in their academic and athletic pursuits, as funds are used for scholarships, travel, equipment, uniforms, recruiting, and other operational costs.
As tuition and scholarship expenses continue to rise, the support of our alumni, parents, fans, and friends of Oakland University Athletics becomes more critical. No matter the size of your gift, you are making a difference in the lives of our student-athletes and their first-class experience as Golden Grizzlies.
Support impacts our student-athletes’ education by assisting with scholarship costs as they prepare for their careers after Oakland.
