Campus Campaign

Over 12,250 faculty and staff participated in Campus Campaign 2014, with gifts and pledges bringing the overall total of faculty and staff giving since 1986 to just over $155 million. Thank you!

Your gifts to the university and specifically to the areas you choose to support are much appreciated. Many areas rely on our gifts to maintain services and develop and grow programs that support our students, research, patient care, and faculty and staff development.

As we begin the new fiscal year and Campus Campaign 2015, we want to remind you that while we don’t actively ask for your gifts until March 1-April 30, your participation in this year’s campaign starts calculating July 1, 2014.

QUESTION OF THE MONTH

How is Campus Campaign different from Bucks for Charity?
Campus Campaign contributions are used internally for Ohio State’s individual programs, projects and endowments. Campus Campaign donors choose where they want their gifts to be used according to their interest areas within the university. One hundred percent of each gift goes to the chosen fund(s). There are thousands of funds within Ohio State, ranging from patient assistance to employee education, research, scholarships and program support. Gifts to Pelotonia count toward participation in Campus Campaign.

Bucks for Charity, Ohio State’s participation in the United Way’s Charitable Drive, focuses externally on community organizations and charities in the city and surrounding counties. A percentage of these gifts goes toward administration of the funds. These initiatives are not related to the annual Campus Campaign and do NOT count toward participation in that effort.

REASONS TO SAY “THANK YOU!”

The But for Ohio State campaign is a $2.5 billion fundraising endeavor that invites those who believe in Ohio State to invest in our students, our faculty, and our potential.
