Garden of Hope

What’s your story? What do you want your story to be?

As CFAES faculty and staff, we have an opportunity to give back to Ohio State in innumerable ways. No matter your passion, Ohio State has opportunities to change lives, encourage discoveries, support students, help animals, fight the opioid epidemic, fund the arts, feed the hungry, advance medicine and more.

During Campus Campaign, consider what you want your story to be. How will you make a difference at Ohio State? In the community? Throughout Ohio? Around the world? This is your chance to tell your story and make an impact.

Every gift tells a story.

What will yours be?
