Faculty and Staff Giving




Have A Direct Impact

As an employee of Otterbein, your daily connection with and support of our mission is invaluable.  In addition to sharing your talent and time with Otterbein, your support through The Otterbein FUND enables President Krendl and other campus leaders to invest resources in strategic priorities that are mission critical for Otterbein.  

Your gift will help Otterbein recruit and support promising Cardinal scholars, provide resources and support to professors and, most importantly, help lead Otterbein into the future while protecting the traditions and commitments this University holds most dear.

Why give to Otterbein?

We all give of our time, but we can also support Otterbein financially. Whether your gift is for The Otterbein FUND, or is designated to scholarships and financial aid, faculty and academic programs, library resources, computing and technology, or student activities and athletics -- it all goes to make the best possible experience for our students! 

How do I give?

One of the easiest ways to give is through payroll deduction. Payroll deduction requests received by the 15th of the month will be processed on your next check (unless you specify otherwise).  Forms received after the 15th will be processed the following month. Below is a chart showing what various deductions will amount to over a year. 

You can set up payroll deduction online or make a one time gift online now.  Additionally, you can drop off a check made out to Otterbein University at the Howard House, 131 W. Park Street.

Who benefits from my gift?

THE STUDENTS! Tuition doesn't cover it all. Private gifts and grants are the second highest source of income for the University. Your gift will provide immediate support for our students.

How much do I need to give?

Every dollar makes a difference. Whatever you can give is meaningful and can have a great impact when it is joined with contributions from the entire Otterbein community.

I give to Otterbein because I believe in what Otterbein stands for. The reason we are all here comes down to this fact: There are students to teach and lives to change.
Dr. Michael Hoggarth, Professor of Biology and Earth Science
I give to Otterbein because Otterbein has given so much to me. Otterbein showed me there will always be bumps in the road of life, but it will never be that bad with a rich and diverse education, a worldwide network of friends, brothers and colleagues, and a place I can always call home.
