Aligning goals together through philanthropy

A gift to Ohio State is an investment in our students, our faculty and our potential. 

By supporting Ohio’s land-grant institution, company partners can help 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. 

With your support, we can bring a wider spectrum of research opportunity to Ohio State — and offer more solutions to those we serve locally and around the world.

Our Partners And Resources

Corporate Relations, part of Ohio State Advancement, serves as the corporate philanthropy experts at the university. They assist companies in finding the right philanthropic partnerships that are driven by awareness of needs, alignment of goals and advocacy of valuable relationships.
