OU Core Sustainers


The Core Curriculum is the tie that binds all generations of Oglethorpe graduates and remains the foundation for developing critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills.


Philanthropic support of all levels is important to help us satisfy our mission. By becoming a monthly donor, you are supporting The Core. OU Core Sustainers celebrates donors who give at regular intervals as a demonstration of their commitment to educational excellence. Supporting the university’s mission through monthly support is a critical component of OU’s success. Annual support needs continue to increase, and Core Sustainers help us meet these monthly needs. Oglethorpe University is a nonprofit institution that relies on philanthropic gifts from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, foundations, and corporations. We celebrate all who donate in support of students, faculty, and campus improvements.

  • Provide scholarship funds for students in need, so they can focus on their studies
  • Give students the opportunity to participate in new programs and enhance their leadership skills
  • Support faculty and help to retain and recruit the best talent
  • Preserve and maintain our beautiful campus buildings and grounds
