Time and Change: The Ohio State Campaign
The campaign's financial goal is $4.5 billion – the largest in Ohio State’s history. More importantly, it strives to engage 1 million supporters, an unprecedented level in higher education.
To reach both goals, Ohio State will need its 500,000-plus alumni and donors to engage and pay forward like never before with gifts small and large. Buckeyes have consistently embraced legendary Ohio State Coach Woody Hayes’ admonition to “always try to pay forward” – giving generously of their talent, time and treasure in their communities, to those in need, and at their alma mater.
The quiet phase of Time and Change began on October 1, 2016, and the public phase was launched in October 2019 with three core areas:
Student Success • Discovery • Healthy, Vibrant Communities
With an ambitious campaign fundraising goal of $450 million, the College of Engineering will be instrumental in helping the university achieve its ambitious goals and invest in vital focus areas that champion human potential.
There are currently 68,000 living Buckeye architecture and engineering alumni located throughout the world. In conjunction with the university’s effort to increase overall donor participation, we strive to attain 16,000 total unique donors to the college by the end of the eight-year campaign. Targeting outreach to encourage first-time donors and young alumni to pay forward at Ohio State will help us achieve these goals and contribute to building an enduring culture of philanthropy.
