Thank You Everyone!

November 19, 2019

And with that, the BuckeyeFunder is officially closed! Thank you so much to all who supported this first ever campaign for Buck-I-SERV's travel assistance fund. Though we ended up falling short of our goal, we are still proud of what we have accomplished (and learned some great lessons for next time). The funds we did raise will still go toward providing assistance for students going forward, which will ensure more students are able to get their own Buck-I-SERV experience.


An enormous, overwhelming thank you to all of you who donated. Because of people like you, Buck-I-SERV can continue to travel, learn, and serve to the best of our ability. Please check out our website, sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on social media to stay in touch with us. We have tons of new and exciting things going on for the rest of the academic year and beyond!



Closing in on the final day!

November 14, 2019



We only have one day left for the BuckeyeFunder campaign! Huge thank you as always to those who have already made a donation. We are going to keep pushing for this last day and see how close we can make it to our goal. Stay tuned for a final update upon the conclusion of the campaign.



Passed $2000 and we are still going!

October 31, 2019

Wow, this is awesome! We have passed $2000 and still have 15 days to go. Another huge thank you to all of those who have already donated.


Reminder, to follow Buck-I-SERV on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We will have lots of great content coming out on those platforms in the next few weeks so keep an eye out for that!



Where in the World is Buck-I-SERV in Winter 2019?

October 24, 2019

Another week of Buck-I-SERV's BuckeyeFunder has come and gone, and we keep making progress towards our goal! As always, a huge thank you to those who have already donated, we greatly appreciate your support.


Interested in where Buck-I-SERV will be travelling, learning, and serving this winter season? This seems like as good a time as any to highlight some of those locations. Here are some of the places we will be in just under two months:


32 total trips


12 states and the District of Columbia

  • Includes trips with the two community partners we have been working with the longest, One Heartland in Willow River, Minnesota and Food and Friends in Washington, D.C. (both since 2004)
  • State with the most trips: Florida (5 trips)
  • New domestic trips: Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro, NC and OUTMemphis in Memphis, Tennessee

4 international locations

  • Locations: Guatemala, Ghana, Uruguay, and Costa Rica
  • New international trip: Rizoma Field School in Colonia, Uruguay

We are so excited to be in these locations working with new and returning community partners! If you want to see photos and hear travel stories from our participants, check out #buckiserv on Twitter and Instagram.



We've passed $1000!

October 17, 2019

Well it's official, we have passed $1000 raised for the Buck-I-SERV BuckeyeFunder! Thank you so much to all who have donated, we greatly appreciate your support. We still have a ways to go but we are off to a good start.


In a little Buck-I-SERV program related news, last night (Wednesday, 10/16) was Buck-I-SERV's Winter Trip Kickoff. We will be sending around 400 total participants on trips this winter and many of them were able to make it last night, connect with their group, and learn more about the experience they are about to have. We cannot wait to see what these awesome folks accomplish!



Buck-I-SERV's BuckeyeFunder is officially underway!

October 09, 2019

As of last week the BuckeyeFunder for Buck-I-SERV's new travel assistance fund is officially underway! Thank you to everyone who has already made a donation, your contributions will go a long way to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to engage in a Buck-I-SERV experience. We still have a ways to go but I am confident with the continued support of our awesome friends, family, program alumni, and more we can make this goal a reality. I'll keep updating as the weeks go on, so look out for those future updates.
