Why give to Defiance College?

By contributing to Defiance College, donors are investing in our students. The dividends are enormous: Equipped with a liberal arts-based education and an innovative college-to-career action plan, our graduates are uniquely competitive in today’s workforce.

Our learning approach—rooted in the liberal arts—emphasizes leadership, communication skills, critical thinking, moral reasoning, global awareness, and respect for diversity. The last time we checked, those are the specific competencies top employers seek when hiring.

Your financial gift to Defiance College helps prepare a student for a lifetime of professional possibilities. Thank you.
