The Ohio State Foundation Board of Directors recognizes three members for recent philanthropic commitments to Ohio State totaling $12.1 million.

  • Pat Robinson and her husband, Thom, of Troy, Ohio, have made a $5.9 million bequest in support of the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library, The Ohio State University Medical Center, athletics scholarships, the marching band, and the OSUMC Eye Clinic.
  • Bob Hummel and his wife, Carol, of Fort Collins, Colorado, have made a $5 million bequest to Veterinary Medicine.
  • Corbett Price of New York, New York, has pledged $1.2 million in support of both minority scholarships in the Fisher College of Business, and a president's discretionary fund.

“Our Foundation directors are among the most dedicated members of the Ohio State community,” said Peter B.

They inspire us every day.”
