Gift Recognition


It is virtually impossible for us to continue to make progress in teaching, research, and service without the continuing support of our faculty, alumni and friends. We appreciate this investment in our future and we recognize their contributions in several ways:

Naming Opportunities

One of the ways we recognize our donors is through the naming of endowed funds established in support of College scholarships, faculty chairs, professorships, and other vital programs. Another way we thank donors is through the naming of buildings, laboratories, classrooms, and other facilities in honor of those who make substantial gifts in support of needed programs and facilities.

The President's Club

This is the university's largest and most prestigious major donor recognition group. Founded in 1963 and administered by The Ohio State University Foundation, The President's Club is "a special circle of friends who share a common passion for and pride in Ohio State."
