Invest in Ohio State

Your gift to The Ohio State University is an investment in our students, our faculty and our potential. By supporting Ohio’s land-grant institution, alumni, friends, parents and partners can help us secure educational opportunities for future generations of students and meet the enormous challenges we face as a society. Together, we will sustain an enduring tradition of scholarship, service and pride.

At Ohio State, we are not afraid to take risks, to test bold hypotheses or to rethink traditional approaches to problems. We are innovators of new technologies and medical procedures. We dare to ask new questions and to celebrate the synergy and solutions that result when people from seemingly unrelated disciplines join together for a common cause. With additional private support, we will be able to bring a wider spectrum of research opportunities to Ohio State — and consequently offer more solutions to those we serve locally and around the world.
