Bucks for Charity

Dear Colleagues,

As President Drake announced, the Bucks for Charity drive is underway! Through November 13, you can give to your favorite charity – conveniently one-time or online through payroll deduction.

David Davisson and Gwen Wolford will be the Bucks for Charity coordinators for CFAES. Watch your email for an opportunity to celebrate your giving near the end of the campaign.

Bucks for Charity is one way all of us can come together to help transform our community and the lives of others. Our goal this year is to have 14% of our faculty and staff donate to raise $29,000. Last year, 12 % of our faculty and staff participated and we raised $23,470.

The annual drive encourages faculty and staff to donate to local organizations of their choice. There are many charities you can give to through Bucks for Charity that provide programs and services for education, health, environment, hunger, social justice or other community needs. If you’re already giving to a local organization, you can donate to the same organization through Bucks for Charity.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We also have paper forms if you’d prefer a one-time gift via check or cash. Printed resource guides are also available if you’d like to consider any of the participating charities.

For more information, visit bucksforcharity.osu.edu and view this video from the Bucks for Charity Chairs, Miechelle Willis, Athletics Deputy Director, and Mike Michael Hofherr, Vice President and Chief Information Officer.

If each of us gives a little – even the price of one cup of coffee – we can help someone in need and make a meaningful difference in our community.

Gwen Wolford & Dave Davisson
