Donor Options


Your support of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is greatly appreciated. Development officers are available in each of the program areas of the Medical Center to assist you with ways to give. Please see the Development Staff Directory for assistance.

Friends of the Medical Center who wish to make a contribution are encouraged to consider the following donor options:

Online Giving/Cash
Cash donations are often the most convenient form of giving. Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized. You can give now through online giving.

Gifts can also be mailed to:
The Office of Medical Center Development and Alumni Affairs
1480 W. Lane Ave.
Columbus, OH  43221

Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-beneficial. A pledge enables a donor to consider a more significant gift as it is payable over five years.

Gifts of securities may be made outright 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. For general questions on securities, call (614) 292-2141 or e-mail gifts@osu.edu.

Gifts of appreciated securities may be tax-deductible up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. The deduction is based on the full fair market value, and capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to the University.

Planned Gifts
Planned giving may be a preferable way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts and bequests. For more information on planned giving, contact the Gift Planning staff ​or visit the Ohio State Gift Planning site.
