Before Day For Oxy:

Subject: Join me on April 20 for a Day For Oxy!


We’re counting down to the Day For Oxy on April 20, Oxy’s Founders Day and 135th birthday! On that day, the Oxy community across the globe will join together to support today’s students, faculty and staff as they continue to move forward and build a new chapter in the College’s history.

I’m advocating for Oxy to help the College reach its goal of inspiring 2,022 donors to give within 36 hours. Gifts can be made in support of all areas of Oxy, including academic departments, athletics, equity & justice initiatives, and the Oxy Fund, which immediately supports the greatest needs of the College.

I hope you’ll join me and make a gift on April 20. A gift of any size, 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 our Tiger pride on April 20 during the #DayForOxy. Visit to learn more! 

Thank you for your support of this important effort,

P.S. Help spread the word and celebrate Oxy’s 135th birthday on social media using #DayForOxy. Every post makes a difference and contributes to the day’s success!

During the Day For Oxy:

Subject: Today’s the Day For Oxy, will you help me reach my goal?


Today's the day!

It’s Oxy’s Founders Day and the 3rd annual Day For Oxy – a time for the Oxy community to join together to support the College. Over the next 36 hours, our goal is to inspire 2,022 donors to give to Oxy, making 2022 the year that we came together to support today’s students, faculty and staff as they renew their campus community – back together again.

[Insert personal anecdote about why Oxy is important to you.] That’s why I’m proud to advocate for the College I love on this Day For Oxy.

[If you are advocating for the general Day For Oxy] I’m asking for your help in reaching my personal fundraising goal of [$X]. Every gift makes a true difference and will support the College’s immediate needs, including additional health and safety supplies, increased financial aid for families, and mental health support for students during today’s ongoing challenges. Please consider a gift in whatever amount is meaningful and doable for you.

[If you are advocating for a specific area of support] On this Day For Oxy, my goal is to raise $[Insert Your Goal] in support of [Insert Your Preferred Area of Support]. [Share why you’re advocating for this Area of Support]. I hope you will consider a gift to [Area of Support], which you can direct at checkout through the Give button on my Advocate page. Every gift counts!

You can make your gift using this link and it will count towards my personal goal: <Insert your personal Advocate page link>. Please call, text or reply to this email if I can answer any questions.
