Why Give?

Antioch University Needs Your Support


Antioch University educates students to think critically, to act ethically and to pursue a life of engaged citizenship. With your help, we can increase scholarship dollars to assist students to attend Antioch, and we can expand student services and develop new programs. With your help, Antioch University students will have the opportunity to learn more and be more.

When you make a gift to Antioch University, your contribution will be put to work immediately-providing scholarships for current and future students, funding new programs, or creating reliable alternative sources of revenue by building the university’s endowment. The generosity of your gift will ensure ongoing support and help define our future. There are many ways to give, and each gift will have an impact on current as well as future students.

For more information about giving opportunities, please contact Tim Forbess, Vice Chancellor of Institutional Advancement, at 937-769-1825 or tforbess@antioch.edu.


The Fund for the Future

Over the next two years, Antioch University will focus on expanding key academic programs and launching new programs to serve more students and meet critical emerging needs nationally and globally. We hope you'll support these efforts through a gift to Antioch's new Fund for the Future

The Fund for the Future will be the catalyst to ignite the most progressive, social justice-serving and earth-saving academic offerings of any university in the nation. As part of this initiative, outstanding programs in areas such as environmental studies and specializations within psychology that are currently only offered on one or two Antioch campuses will be expanded to more campuses.

Your gift can be made to the Antioch University-wide Fund for the Future to support initiatives across the University, or you can designate your contribution to support a specific campus. Learn more and/or make a contribution by visiting this page

Giving to Scholarships 

Most of our students work full-time or part-time, many have family obligations, and all feel the pinch from rising prices for living expenses. A scholarship can make the difference in the ability of students to complete the degree. By making a gift to a Scholarship Fund, you can give these students an opportunity they might not otherwise have to pursue higher education.

Annual Fund

Annual Fund gifts supply the much-needed gift of flexibility and, therefore, are critical to the operation and advancement of the university and its programs. Annual funds are unrestricted, current-use funds that provide maximum flexibility for responding quickly to new opportunities and to meet immediate and unexpected needs. Your gift to the Annual Fund goes directly where it is needed most. Annual Fund gifts help ensure that we are able to provide students with much needed financial aid, up-to-date technology, library resources, new equipment, academic support, and a host of other essentials that enhance the quality of the education for our students.

Endowment Giving

An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding; a gift made on the stipulation that the principal be maintained in perpetuity and that only income from investment of the gift be expended. Endowment gifts are invested to provide permanent annual support for scholarships, faculty, curriculum development and general operations. Endowment funds allow Antioch University to plan for the future with confidence and help provide a secure financial future for our students. You can help the University create a reliable source of future income by expanding the university’s endowment.

Planned Giving

Planned giving benefits the university by establishing a lasting legacy. Our Institutional Advancement staff will help you create a philanthropic strategy tailored to meet your unique financial needs. Planned giving may involve bequests, life insurance, life income agreements, annuities, and trusts.
