A Legacy of Giving

Gifts from our alumni and friends provide our students with scholarships, and they fund programs that expose students to new practices in the evolving field of dentistry.

Ways to Give to the College of Dentistry

Cash

Cash is often the most convenient form of giving. Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized.

Pledges

Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have been otherwise possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor.

Securities

Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned directly to The Ohio State University Foundation or may be transferred through the donor's broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. It is best to consult with a Development Officer before a transaction is made.

Planned Gifts

Cash is often the most convenient form of giving. Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized.

Profiles in Alumni Giving

Your support also helps to establish awards for teaching excellence, while also allowing our students and graduate students to conduct research that will change the way oral health care providers serve patients. Gifts from our alumni bring new technologies to our facilities so our patients receive the best care available. You may choose to give to the College of Dentistry as broadly or as specifically as you would like.
