Buckeyes for Charity Theme is Caring for Ohioans

Each year, Buckeyes for Charity provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and retirees to support statewide nonprofit organizations. Join us in Caring for Ohioans and help raise more than $1 million by giving to organizations that matter to you – make your pledge this year by Nov. 5. Among the causes you can support at the local level are food security, health and wellness programming and services, housing, animal welfare, education, advocacy programs, or the environment.

As Dean Kress has stated recently, “As the cornerstone college of this university, we are uniquely poised to show support to many of the nonprofit organizations that have worked in partnership with us throughout every county in this state to educate and improve the social, economic, and environmental conditions of citizens at every stage of life. 

Buckeyes for Charity makes it easy to choose from more than 850 nonprofit organizations and give via credit card, check, cash, or payroll deduction with a one-time or recurring donation. Reach out to our college coordinators, Kelly Elisar ( or Emily Wickham ( if you have any questions.
