Bucks for Charity - Human Resources at Ohio State

Bucks for Charity

When Buckeyes unite, we make our community stronger.

Support the annual campaign through November 30 by donating to local organizations of your choice. The more Buckeyes who donate, the greater difference Ohio State can make in our local community. The more Bucks the better.

Donations at any level – even just $1 a day – can significantly make a difference. Together, our collective donations strengthen the organizations that support our family, friends and neighbors.
