Before Day For Oxy:

Subject: Join me for the 4th annual Day For Oxy on April 20!

We’re counting down to the Oxy Fund’s 4th annual Day For Oxy on April 20, Occidental’s Founders Day! On that day, the Oxy community across the globe will join together to support the students of today, and strengthen the College of tomorrow.

I’m advocating to help the College reach its goal of inspiring 1,987 donors to give over the next 36 hours. The aim is to reach one donor for every student on campus today. Gifts can be made in support of all areas of Oxy, including financial aid, academic departments, athletics, JEID initiatives, and critical mental health support and services for students.

I hope you’ll join me and make a gift on April 20. Gifts of all sizes, to any area of the College that is meaningful to you, will make a true difference and help us reach our goal.

Let’s show today’s students that our Tiger community is there for them. Visit to learn more! 

Thank you, in advance, for your support of this exciting tradition,
