Other Donor Recognition

Donor recognition for giving directed to specific areas of Ohio State takes on many forms. There are named donor recognition societies, donor walls, and honor rolls reflecting the names of generous supporters, and buildings and facilities named to honor leadership gifts that made these campus resources possible.  Event programs, college magazines, and web sites may have a list of donors or a story of a specific donor who has made an important gift.

A few examples of donor recognition across campus include the following:

The Department of Athletics recognizes support of its student-athletes and the outstanding facilities where they train and compete through The Buckeye Club.

Fisher College of Business features the names of the many supporters who have created an incredible campus and sense of community for business students on buildings, classrooms, and a donor wall to show appreciation and recognition for giving leadership. 

The John Glenn School of Public Affairs lists an honor roll of donors on its web site, including donors who are members of its Silver and Gold Crest Societies, which recognize annual gifts of $1,000 and $2,500 or more, respectively.

The Ohio State University Medical Center has several donor recognition walls located throughout its busy medical facilities. Patients visiting facilities such as the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital for care are able to see names of the many benefactors who have supported the physicians and programs involved in patients’ treatment and recovery. The Havener Eye Institute recently unveiled a new donor wall that features names of donors who are members of the Havener Legacy, a lifetime recognition society.


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.
