Nearing the end!

April 06, 2020

With only one day left in our campaign, we've raised $83 for the LGBTQ+ community! We wanted to use this update to thank our donors one last time. Your contributions will help so many students at Ohio State! Thank you for thinking of others during this difficult time and for giving us the means to fight for something that means a lot to us! 

Boredom in the time of Corona

March 28, 2020

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! At the end of week 3 we have raised $78. Due to the circumstances brought about by COVID-19, our campaign has been extended another week! This gives us even more time to raise money to support the LGBTQ+ community on the OSU-Mansfield campus! We know you're probably just as bored as we are, so turn that boredom into a feeling of philanthropy by donating to OutLoud today! 

End of Week 3!

March 21, 2020

Thank you so much to everyone for the continued support. It is now the end of week 3 and with only a little over a week left your donations would be very much appreciated. In order for you to see what impact your donations would have on OutLoud, we talked to some students and had them give their take on what OutLoud means to them! Thank you again for your support!

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! We have raised $78 with 2 weeks left in our campaign! 

Heres what Norman Jones, Dean of OSU-Mansfield had to say when asked what OutLoud means to him and what it does for the OSU community. 

“Student-run groups are vital to the educational process. They help strengthen students’ sense of community belonging on campus—which has been shown to increase academic success rates—and they create valuable learning opportunities in leadership. Moreover, groups such as OutLoud that embrace diversity in people and ideas exemplify one of Ohio State’s core values. We aim to be an inclusive, supportive community where you can comfortably join in or confidently stand out.”

Please join in our effort to make OSU an even more inclusive community! 

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has donated! For this week, we have raised $78! We are still accepting donations and would greatly appreciate your support! The money you give will foster a more inclusive environment for students that are a part of the LGBTQ+ community.
