The Neil Legacy Society

Recognizing planned gifts at The Ohio State University

The Neil Legacy Society recognizes alumni, faculty, staff, retirees, and other friends who have named the university a beneficiary of a planned gift. Named in honor of the Neil family, who made 361 acres of farmland available for what is now known as The Ohio State University, The Neil Legacy Society honors those who have invested in Ohio State’s tradition of excellence long into the future.

Today, the influences of many completed bequests, trusts, and other planned gifts are reflected throughout the university. The impact is evident in buildings that are home to programs of distinction, research leading to new discoveries, student scholarships to study at Ohio State, and study abroad opportunities to expand student experiences beyond the classroom.

Legacy gifts are part of a deeply rooted tradition at Ohio State. Those who establish a planned gift of any size play a key role in securing the university’s future and are recognized by The Neil Legacy Society. These donors have remembered Ohio State with a lifetime income gift or as a beneficiary of a will, trust, retirement plan, or life insurance policy. Members receive invitations to special events and updates on university giving news.

By notifying the Office of Gift Planning of your gift commitment, you will be included among the donors recognized by The Neil Legacy Society. We are deeply grateful for these gifts and know they will enhance the programs and support the people who are part of this great university.
