Be a champion for student-athletes

The cost to provide world-class collegiate opportunities for Ohio State student-athletes continues to rise.


It takes significant resources to support Ohio State’s athletic program — the largest and most comprehensive in the nation. The cost of providing educational experiences for our Buckeyes has doubled in the past decade. 


As Coach Woody Hayes once said, “You win with people.” And it takes the generosity of fans and friends to continue operating at the level of excellence Buckeye Nation has come to expect. 


When you give to the Champions Fund, you help provide scholarships to more than 1,000 Ohio State student-athletes. You empower them to become Olympians, national and divisional champions, record-setters and scholastic leaders. Fueled by your support, our student-athletes provide fans with unforgettable moments in 36 varsity sports and go on to improve communities around the state and the country. 


For our student-athletes to perform at their best — in classrooms and in competition — we turn to you. By showing your support, you are giving our Buckeyes the competitive advantage they deserve.
