ALUMNI & FRIENDS Donor Recognition

We are grateful to those who support our mission.

Fisher Recognition

To show our thanks for those who invest in the college at a leadership level—whether lifetime or annual—Fisher has created two college-specific recognition programs. 

  • Hagerty Club

    To honor the leadership and vision of one of our college's first champions, Fisher has created the Hagerty Club—a new recognition program distinguishing individuals whose annual philanthropic support continues to impact the lives of our students and the Fisher community.

    When you commit to supporting Fisher at the annual leadership level—$3,000 or more in a calendar year—you are immediately eligible for membership in the Hagerty Club.

    As some of the college's closest friends, Hagerty Club donors receive a number of key benefits, including:

    • Access to college leadership
    • Early registration for select events on campus and in your area
    • Opportunities to engage with Fisher students and network with fellow Hagerty Club donors
    • Recognition of your support and commitment at college-wide events
    • Additional Ohio State recognition through the President's Club


    Should you wish to have an even greater philanthropic impact on the students, programs and faculty at Fisher, you can do so by making annual gifts of $10,000 or more. You will be recognized as members of the Dean's Circle, which provides even greater access to the dean and other college leaders, VIP designation at exclusive events and broader opportunities for recognition through Fisher's communication channels.

  • 1916 Society

    As the college celebrates its 100th Anniversary in 2016, we honor those for their lifetime commitments of $100,000 and above to the college as part of the 1916 Society. As a community, we rely on the continued loyalty and support of our alumni and friends and we are proud to recognize this special group of donors whose leadership moves Fisher forward.

    As some of the college's closest friends, 1916 Society donors receive a number of key benefits, including:

    • Access to college and univeristy leadership
    • Regional receptions with the dean and other college leadership
    • VIP designation at select events on campus and in your area
    • Opportunities to engage with Fisher students and network with fellow 1916 Society donors
    • Personalized engagement from the Office of Advancement


    Donors who reach this level of commitment during the Centennial year will be honored as 1916 Society Founding Donors and displayed prominently on Fisher's campus.

University Recognition

Additionally, there are recognition societies inclusive of giving in support of other colleges and units across Ohio State.

 

  • President's Club

    President's Club celebrates the bond that is shared by alumni and friends of Ohio State. It is a special circle of friends that honors our love of history and tradition, our belief in Ohio State's future and our desire to make our world a better place.

    To become a recognized President's Club donor, you must make a qualifying gift each calendar year at the same level as the Hagerty Club (currently $3,000 in annual contributions). If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the President's Club Office at presidentsclub@osu.edu or call 614-292-9550.

  • The Oval Society

    Established in 2010 and named after the geographical hub and heart of the main campus beloved by generations, The Oval Society honors the leadership philanthropy of Ohio State’s most generous (currently those whose contributions to the university total $1 million and greater).

    The Oval Society celebrates an extraordinary group of supporters who shoulder this responsibility, who meet the enormous challenges we face as a society, who seek a new vision for the university, who empower Ohio State to fulfill our land-grant mission and who make the American dream come true for so many. It is the profound commitment of Oval Society members that enables the university to not only sustain an enduring tradition of scholarship, service and pride, but also help us go boldly into the future thanks to their transformational giving.
