Ways to Support

Ozarks Annual Fund

The Ozarks Annual Fund directly supports students by providing critical funding on a yearly basis for scholarships and student programming. It is the annual lifeblood for the University, and directly sustains Ozarks’ ability to prepare students to live life fully.

Grants and Scholarships

An Ozarks experience would not be possible without the generous support of our scholarship donors. In academic year 2019-2020, 100% of Ozarks students received a form of financial aid.


An Ozarks endowment provides an opportunity to establish a fund that, through investment revenue, continues to make a difference year after year. There are numerous options for creating, funding and designating an endowment, including the opportunity to name this lasting gift in honor of a friend or loved one.

Aerie Club (Athletics) 

The Aerie Club directly supports Ozarks athletes and the University’s 21 men’s and women’s athletic teams. Explore the giving level options and the many benefits of becoming a member of the Ozarks Aerie Club.
