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 proudly recognizes all donors, including those who have generously supported the college through annual leadership gifts. To honor the leadership and vision of one of the college's first champions, Fisher created the Hagerty Club- a program that recognizes individuals whose annual philanthropic support of the college totals $3,000 and above.

During Fisher's Centennial year of 2016, the college will launch the 1916 Society, which will recognize all donors whose lifetime commitment to the college is $100,000 and above.

More details on all recognition programs can be found by contacting the Office of External Relations at 614-292-2181 or givetofisher@osu.edu.

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.
