Faculty, Staff and Retiree Giving
The All-University Fund Drive (AUFD) is an annual effort supported by the dedication of faculty, staff and retirees - Oakland University’s closest allies. Giving sets us apart as leaders striving to make a difference for our students and furthering the work we do.
Did you know:
- OU is a nonprofit organization and relies on donor support to keep education within reach and offer the programs on which we pride ourselves.
- Many students receive scholarships that help ease the financial burden of a college education. Others participate in student organizations, research and other activities that benefit from donor support.
- President Hynd's office will match $.50 for each dollar donated, up to a total individual gift of $5,000 ($2,500 match). That means a gift to your favorite fund goes even further!
- Tuition alone only covers around 80% of the cost to educate a full-time student. Donors like you help fill that gap.
- You can give to your own department or area to help your work go further.
- And all students benefit from the strong academic infrastructure that exists because of the generous support of our closest friends and allies, the faculty and staff who have dedicated their careers to this campus and those students.
Ways to Give
You may direct your gift to the program(s) of your choice - see the gift fund page's complete list. For more information, contact us.

The All-University Fund Drive is supported by a network of volunteers across campus. Team captains and leaders tell their own stories about why they support OU, educate their teammates about the AUFD and answer questions about the philanthropy process and its importance on campus.
To find your team captain and leader, please select your school or unit below. While most areas are represented by a team leader, some still need volunteers! Contact the Office of Annual Giving at (248) 370-4504 if you are interested in volunteering as a team leader.
