Make your gift today!

The next generation of Buckeyes need your help to reach their academic dreams! For over three decades, the NYC Alumni Club has provided scholarship assistance to students from the local area attending the university. These scholarships were made possible through the generosity of countless alumni and friends of the club pledging their support year after year.

While undeniably impactful, this funding model presented numerous challenges as it required the club’s scholarship account to be replenished annually in order to issue awards to the next cohort of students and available funds often fluctuated dramatically.

To remedy this situation, the club is currently striving to create a permanent scholarship endowment fund and we are seeking your support. A scholarship endowment fund presents numerous advantages and ensures that the impact of your gift today will be felt in perpetuity.

Once we reach the $100,000 threshold, the university will invest the collected funds on our behalf and the earned interest will be used to award annual scholarships. Meanwhile, the principal balance of the account will remain untouched thereby ensuring a stable and predictable source of income for generations to come.

Thanks to the generosity of several incredible club members, we have already received matching gift commitments totaling $25,000. This means that every dollar you donate to this campaign between now and June 30, 2024 will be matched and will have double the impact!

With over 13,000 alumni in the Greater New York City region, we are confident in our ability to reach our goal, but we cannot do it without your support. Please consider making a gift today to ensure that an Ohio State education is never out of reach for any deserving student!
