Ways to Give

Your gift can make an impact

At The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, we strive to enhance and advance the health and well-being of animals and people, educate the next generation of veterinarians and conduct break-through research. With your support we will continue to Be The Model® comprehensive college of veterinary medicine in the world. Let’s work together and build an indelible legacy that will impact the lives of animals and humans for current and future generations.

Donors are encouraged to consider the following options to give to Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine

Check, Debit, or Credit Card
Cash gifts are typically fully tax deductible for federal tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized. You can set up a payment on your credit card to occur monthly or annually.

A gift can be paid with annual installments over a period of time. A pledge may enable a more significant gift than would be otherwise possible.

Many donors find value in giving from their IRA’s during their lifetime or making the college a beneficiary. Benefits include eliminating paying income taxes on the distribution and counting the gift towards your required distribution.

When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year to us in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. Click here for additional information
