Bucks for Charity raises more than $1 million for local community

Making a difference is an important part of being a Buckeye and this year nearly 4,500 faculty, staff and retirees rallied together to raise $1,174,735 for central Ohio community organizations.

Bucks for Charity is an annual campaign that gives Ohio State employees the opportunity to donate to their local charity of choice. They can choose from more than 300 central Ohio nonprofits that support a variety of causes.

“When we come together as Buckeyes, the power we have to make a meaningful difference in our community is astounding,” said Michael Hofherr, vice president, chief information officer and 2016 Bucks for Charity chair. “Thank you to everyone who helped strengthen organizations that support our family, friends and neighbors. It’s been amazing to witness what we can achieve together.”

During the 2016 campaign, Ohio State faculty, staff and retirees exceeded 2015 contributions to help make a positive impact in the community.
