Corporate and Foundation Relations

Foundation Relations

Our Foundation Relations team helps the university community to identify, establish, and coordinate foundation support for Ohio State’s educational, academic and community service priorities. We promote mutually beneficial relationships with private philanthropic foundations that likely share a defined interest with one or more of Ohio State’s diverse programs, including its 92 doctoral, 132 masters, and 167 undergraduate programs.

The Foundation Relations team works closely with philanthropic foundations to develop innovative projects and programs that promise positive, long-term impact.

We invite you to explore the partnership opportunities at Ohio State, including many programs of national and global prominence. Contact us to learn more.
