Parents Fund

Supporting Ohio State Undergraduate Students

The Ohio State University Fund for Parents Support provides funds for university programs and initiatives that enhance the academic and social experiences for every student at Ohio State. Through gifts to the Parents Fund, parents and alumni provide financial support to Health and Wellness, Career Services, Leadership Development and Student Safety Services. Gifts to the Parents Fund impact thousands of students and our future leaders.

Your Support Makes a Difference

Gifts from Ohio State parents help to maintain the university's position as a leader in higher education, while providing a special vote of confidence in the work being done. Ohio State makes every effort to make a top-tier college education affordable, particularly during a challenging economic climate. Since tuition cannot fully cover the costs of educating students, private support makes all the difference.
