Annual Giving Program - Corporate Matching Gift
Upgrade your membership in the Buckeye Club with a matching gift from your employer. 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). If your employer offers a matching gift program, both you and Ohio State student-athletes benefit. A corporate matching gift works to upgrade your membership in the Buckeye Club, thus increasing your priority points and, at the same time, providing additional funding for our student-athletes - it's a win-win situation!
For example, a gift of $1,500 provides a Scarlet and Gray Level membership in the Buckeye Club. But a one-to-one matching gift would bring your gift total to $2,599*, placing you at the Big Ten Champions Level, where you will receive the opportunity to purchase football season tickets, priority for all football away and postseason games, and our football and basketball media guides.
*$1,500 minus $401 (the value of benefits of the net gift) plus the original $1,500 gift.
If a matching gift will be utilized, the minimum donation amounts for members are as follows:
|Scarlet and Gray Level||$951|
|Big Ten Champions Level||$1,478|
|National Champions Level||$2,728|
**Please note: If you have multiple Buckeye Club memberships, 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:
