Planned Giving

Thoughtful gift planning is a unique way to include Fisher College of Business in your long-term financial plans and provides both tangible and intangible benefits to you and the institution. Planned gifts allow you to make a contribution now or after your lifetime while enjoying certain tax and other benefits as a result of your contribution.

Establishing a planned gift sends a powerful message about the value Fisher College of Business provides both current and former students. We will work closely with you in determining the appropriate estate vehicles that align with your personal, financial and charitable goals.

Additional resources on different types of charitable planned gifts can be found here.

Documenting your planned gift with Fisher qualifies you for recognition in Ohio State's Neil Legacy Society

In Their Words

  • "But For Ohio State, I would not have been the first-generation college student in my family... It is my great privilege to support Ohio State's future contributions to its students and the world."

    --Richard Johnson (MBA 1962) who, along with his wife Ann, made a commitment for an estate gift to Fisher College of Business to help fund international programs.
