Caring for Ohioans as one Buckeye family

The following message was sent to Ohio State faculty and staff on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.


Dear Colleagues,

The 2021 Buckeyes for Charity campaign is now underway. Through November 5, we can again show the strength of our caring community by making a difference for people and causes all over Ohio. I hope you will join me and other Buckeyes in showing how much we care.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio nonprofits have provided critical services and support to our neighbors across the state. This year, that need is no less great. These organizations still need our help to ensure their vital work continues.

Through Buckeyes for Charity and our more than 850 partner agencies, your generosity can enhance initiatives focused on food security, health and wellness, housing, animal welfare, education, advocacy programs and the environment, and much more. Each pledge we make supports these important causes and the families, pets, communities and futures they uplift. Please consider giving.


The Ohio State Buckeyes for Charity campaign makes it easy for you to help. You can give via credit card, check, cash or payroll deduction and choose to make a one-time or recurring donation. Visit to learn about the impact of your support and make your pledge.

We can achieve more together than we can alone — something we have proven time and again by raising more than $1 million annually through Buckeyes for Charity. Let’s continue Caring for Ohioans, looking after each other and uplifting our communities.

Sincerely yours,

Kristina M. Johnson, PhD
