Support our mission to develop the next generation of public servants. Gifts of every shape and size make a major difference for students and faculty in the Glenn College.

You can make a gift today that will be awarded directly to a student for scholarship support, or become a monthly donor to provide ongoing support for students and faculty research. Additionally, there are a variety of options for donors who wish to discuss arrangements for a larger gift or estate gift. 

Our professional fundraising team is eager to help you find the giving vehicle that works best for your unique circumstances.

Other types of gifts

Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Check to see if your company matches gifts.

Once established, an endowed fund is a dependable and perpetual source of support, since the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent annually. A minimum gift of $50,000 is needed to establish an unrestricted endowment, while $100,000 is needed for a restricted endowment.

In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial, and tax planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning as the best way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and wills or trusts. Discuss your options with Glenn College Development Director, Stephanie Mohr.

Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned directly to The Ohio State University Foundation or may be transferred through the donor's broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. It is best to consult with a Development Officer before a transaction is made. Visit our online stock form prior to transfer to submit information regarding your gift.

For questions on securities, connect with Glenn College Development Director, Stephanie Mohr.

Gifts of appreciated securities may be tax deductible, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. The deduction is based on the full fair market value, and capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to the university.
