The most meaningful benefit of Conger Club membership is making a difference every day in the lives of students and faculty. It’s a way to thank those whose support preserved Ouachita in the past and join with others to guarantee the Ouachita experience for the students of today.
J.W. Conger was elected the first president of Ouachita Baptist College in June, 1886. For 21 years, President Conger guided Ouachita’s development as a Christ-centered learning community. What better name than The Conger Club for those leaders who, through Annual Fund gifts of $1,000 or more, accept the challenge to “carry the torch” to ensure and advance the legacy of Ouachita! Young alumni may become members of Conger Club GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) by giving $20 per month or $240 per year.
Conger Club membership is based on Annual Fund gifts during Ouachita’s fiscal year (June – May) and includes unrestricted gifts and gifts to the Ouachita Scholarship Fund.
With your gift to the Conger Club, you can help Ouachita provide much-needed financial support to our current students. You can expect a commitment from us to use your gift to provide for students who deserve an education but may not be able to afford it. You can expect your gift to make a difference.
Conger Club members will receive:
The opportunity to purchase Tiger Tunes tickets prior to the alumni ticket release
Recognition in all donor listings, both in print and online
Special invitations to campus events
Access to Conger Conversations, an exclusive report and question/answer opportunity conducted by President Sells annually
Personal assistance with OBU matters such as campus parking, events and more.
Donors that give over $1000 to the Annual Fund will also receive an invitation to our annual Donor Banquet and Festival of Christmas in early December.
