Each year, thousands of alumni and friends of The Ohio State University make contributions to the colleges, causes, and campuses to which they feel a connection. Whether their support goes to student scholarships, faculty enrichment, operating costs, research, or special initiatives, the much-needed funds raised annually are essential for Ohio State to remain the vibrant, vital institution beloved by Buckeyes around the globe.
Opportunities to make an annual gift are plentiful and varied. Ohio State reaches out to existing donors and discovers new ones through direct mail campaigns, e-mail appeals, and Ohio State Calling, a fundraising program that connects current students with alumni, parents, and friends. Unlike typical phone solicitations, a call from an Ohio State Calling student employee can lead to exciting conversations about the latest happenings at the university, and offers a convenient way to give back.

For general gifts to wide-reaching Lima campus initiatives, consider giving to the Lima Campus Support Fund. It offers flexible support of the areas of greatest need, as determined by the dean and director.
Some annual donors contribute to Ohio State at a leadership level of giving. To recognize these Buckeyes' consistent generosity, the university extends an invitation to join the President's Club. This special circle of friends share a belief in the power of philanthropy, and contribute at least $2,500 in support of academics, health sciences, and the arts each year.
Thank you for supporting Ohio State.
