Hello everyone! I just wanted to thank all of our donors again for your contributions! We raised $373 together, which is a HUGE help to bring the AIDS Quilt to Ohio State! We REALLY appreciate every cent donated, and we cannot thank you enough.


If you know anyone that would love to donate to this cause but was unable to donate on this platform, our Venmo is @SDES_OSU ! As with the Buckeye Funder, all proceeds will go directly to this event. If you have any questions about the conference or are interested in volunteering with us, please contact us at


Thank you again for making this all possible!! We hope to see you on April 18th for the AIDS Memorial Quilt Conference!

Just a few days left!

Hello everyone! As we near the end of our fundraising campaign, we'd just like to say THANK YOU for all of the contributions so far! Every cent is a huge help for bringing the Quilt to Ohio State, and we would never be able to put this event together without you. With that being said, we would really appreciate it if you spread the word about our fundraiser in its last few days! We are so excited to host this event for the community, and we can't wait to see you all there!

5 Days Left!

Hi everyone! 

We are two and a half weeks into our fundraiser and have raised $373, which covers almost half of the quilt panels! Thank you so much for all your support! We are able to make this event possible through your generosity.


Our 90 dollar tier represents the 90-90-90 rule, which is a target goal for the treatment of HIV introduced by the UN in 2013. The target is for 90% of those with HIV to be aware of their status, for 90% of all diagnosed with HIV to be receiving sustained treatment, and for 90% of that treatment to be successful in suppressing the virus. This approach of universal testing and treating of HIV aims to identify those who are HIV-positive through testing so they can receive treatment as early as possible. Treatment that is successful in suppressing HIV lowers the amount of virus in an HIV-positive person's blood to the point where it is undetectable.

Fundraising Kickoff

February 12, 2020

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all your contributions! We are a week and a half into our project and we have raised $221 so far, which helps to pay for almost a third of the quilt panels! Right now we are in the planning stages of the conference. We are booking our speakers, budgeting, and organizing shipment for the Quilt itself! We want to thank you again for all your help. We would never be able to host this event without you!
