Be a champion for Ohio State Athletics

Ohio State Athletics is one of the largest and most comprehensive athletics departments in the nation, but in order to remain at the forefront of collegiate athletics, we rely on the philanthropic support of passionate Buckeyes.


We believe Ohio State Athletics should be synonymous with success and excellence. But, it takes tremendous resources to continue operating at the highest level. It takes the commitment of Buckeyes across the state and around the nation.


The Champions Fund allows individuals who are passionate about the maintained success of Ohio State Athletics to provide crucial scholarship support for over 1,000 Buckeye student-athletes. Being a Champion means knowing that you play a significant role in the success of each and every Ohio State student-athlete. It means giving our Buckeyes the opportunity to become better citizens and leaders through their experiences in sport, on campus and as a part of The Ohio State University. Being a Champion for Ohio State Athletics means investing in our Buckeyes and the future of Ohio State Athletics.


No tax dollars or university funding are used to cover athletic scholarships, they are completely funded by generous donations, which we receive from our alumni, friends and family like you.


For Ohio State Athletics to maintain its tradition of excellence, we turn to you. By showing your support, you are giving our Buckeyes the competitive advantage they deserve.
