Before Day For Oxy:

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

[Salutation],

We’re counting down the days to the Day For Oxy on April 20, Oxy’s Founders Day. On that day, the Oxy community across the globe will join together to support today’s students, faculty and staff as they conclude this challenging year and look forward to a return to campus.

I'm advocating for Oxy to help the College reach its goal of raising 2,021 gifts in 36 hours. Together, we can make 2021 the year that the Oxy community perseveres through an urgent time in the College’s history.

I hope you'll join me and make a gift on April 20. Gifts of all sizes, to any area of the College that’s 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 givingday.oxy.edu to learn more!

Today’s the day!

It’s Oxy’s Founders Day and the 2nd annual Day For Oxy – a time for the Oxy community to join together to support today’s students, faculty and staff. Over the next 36 hours, our goal is to raise 2,021 gifts, making 2021 the year that we came together to support the College through one of the most challenging times in its 134-year history.
