Tax Deduction Information

Under Internal Revenue Service Guidelines, a portion of your gift is a deductible contribution and will be a part of your gift record to the university. A gift receipt will be sent itemizing your charitable contributions.

Eligible to pay alumni-rate greens fees and use of the facility. Proper identification must be presented for you and your spouse. You may not sponsor a guest.

New season ticket requests for football are based upon availability and level of contribution. Membership in the Buckeye Club disqualifies you from purchasing single game alumni tickets.

If your employer offers a matching gift program, both you and our Ohio State student-athletes benefit. Most employers will match your charitable contribution to the Buckeye Club dollar for dollar or even two for one (minus the value of the benefits received).

“For example, a gift of $1,720 qualifies a donor at the Scarlet and Gray level. But, a one-to-one matching gift would bring your gift total to $3,000*, moving that contribution to the Big Ten Champions Level, where donors receive the opportunity to purchase football season tickets, football season parking, and priority for all football away and postseason games.

*$1,720 minus $440 (the value of benefits of the net gift) plus the original $1,720.

If a matching gift will be utilized, the minimum donation amounts are as follows:

Recent Graduate Program $190

Scarlet and Gray Level $940

Big Ten Champions Level $1,720

National Champions Level $2,728

Scholar-Athlete Level $5,308

All-America Level

$13,018

**Please note: If you have multiple Buckeye Club qualifications, these amounts may differ. Contact our office if you have questions regarding the amount of your personal contribution.


Contact your company's Human Resources office to see if a matching gift program is available. If so, simply complete the matching gift form provided by your employer and return it with your contribution to:

Ohio State Athletics Development
Fawcett Center, 8th Floor
2400 Olentangy River Road
Columbus, OH 43210

The monthly payment plan allows you to divide your gift equally, beginning with the month you begin giving and continuing until June of that year.

For example, if you make a contribution at the Big Ten Champions Level in July, you will have twelve (12) months to complete your donation.

$3,000/12 months = $250.00 per month


If you begin your contribution at the Big Ten Champion Level in January, you will have six (6) months to complete your donation.

$3,000/6 months = $500.00 per month

In order to sign up for pre-authorized monthly payments, please fill out the form below and mail to the office of Ohio State Athletics Development:

Contributions will be taken out on the 1st or 15th of each month.

Without a doubt, the strength of the Buckeye Club comes from our generous donors. For over 35 years, the supporters of the Buckeye Club have joined us in our common goal of supporting the Ohio State Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund. With your help, we hope to continue in this mission by adding to the loyal Buckeye Club family.

In an effort to increase our support of the 1,000+ Ohio State student-athletes, our goal is to expand the Buckeye Club by 1,000 new donors. To reach this goal, we will need your help, as representatives of Buckeye Nation, to champion our mission and encourage new Ohio State supporters to join the Buckeye Club.

Each year, the athletic department transfers over $16.7 million to the university to fund student-athlete scholarships. This year, thanks to the contributions of our donors, the Buckeye Club raised $12 million to aid this support. While this shows the tremendous support of Buckeye Nation, it is our hope that, with your help, we can continue to build the Buckeye Club’s donor base and move closer to fully funding our student-athlete scholarships.

Every donor, and every dollar donated makes a direct impact on our student-athletes. With your help, we can ensure that our Buckeyes continue the Ohio State tradition of excellence. Be a champion for our Buckeyes.


For information about how to refer a new donor, please call (614) 292-9908 or email BuckeyeClub@osu.edu.

*Your name and Buckeye Club account number must be provided with the new donor information.
