Buckeyes for Charity 2021

Each year, Buckeyes for Charity provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and retirees to support statewide nonprofit organizations. The 2021 campaign has concluded.

Buckeyes are passionate and we know you care about many meaningful causes throughout the community. This is your opportunity to join other Buckeyes to make a difference in the lives of Ohioans.

As we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, nonprofits throughout Ohio have been challenged to provide critical services to our fellow Ohioans. They still need our support. Donations made through Buckeyes for Charity will help ensure their vital work continues.

Now is the time to give to organizations that matter to you. The Ohio State Buckeyes for Charity campaign makes it easy for you to help. You can give via credit card, check, cash or payroll deduction and choose to make a one-time or recurring donation.

Buckeyes for Charity includes more than 850 nonprofit organizations across the state of Ohio for you to choose from to support. Causes include food security, health and wellness programming and services, housing, animal welfare, education, advocacy programs, social justice, and the environment.

Now is the time to give to organizations and support the people of Ohio. As Buckeyes, we unite to care for each other and our communities. We are Caring for Ohioans.
