Ways to Give
Friends of The Ohio State University who wish to make a contribution are encouraged to consider the following donor options:

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 send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

For more information on planned giving, please contact Lissa Kline at (614) 688-1061 or John Woods at (614) 292-7254.
