Areas to support

Gifts are tax-deductible contributions and can be made through an outright gift, a pledge, or a planned gift. Payable to OSU Foundation and dedicated to the College of Nursing, contributions may take the form of cash, appreciated stock, a bequest, real estate, other assets, or a combination of those contributions.

College of Nursing
Endowing The Ohio State University College of Nursing will be transformational for the college locally, nationally, and around the globe. An endowment for the college will provide the dean with a stable source of income to hire new faculty to educate more students, fund pilot research studies to improve and enhance health and healthcare, award scholarships and fellowships, and to help launch new programs and initiatives.

Faculty chairs
Faculty chairs will enable the dean to recruit a nationally renowned, senior research scholar in the related field. Professorships may be endowed with a minimum gift of $1,000,000. Chairs may be endowed with a minimum gift of $2,000,000 and a dean’s chair may be endowed with a minimum gift of $3,500,000.

Endowed scholarships & fellowships
An endowed scholarship is established with a minimum $50,000 gift that can be provided in a lump sum or through scheduled payments. Through an endowed scholarship, you may provide a lasting tribute for whom the scholarship is named. The named scholarship will exist in perpetuity to benefit future students.
