Retirement and philanthropy planning at CFAES

Is there a special cause at CFAES that’s important to you? Whether you’re supporting groundbreaking research or easing the burden of student debt, your vision and generosity will create better opportunities for future Buckeyes and the lives they touch. Whatever your retirement planning needs and current situation, there are ways to combine philanthropy with retirement planning to help you reach your goals.

Retirement plan assets are often subject to a high level of both federal and state income taxes. When you designate your retirement plan to the university, your assets can avoid taxation and Ohio State receives 100 percent of the retirement plan assets. Leaving other assets to heirs maximizes the impact of your gift to family and to Ohio State.

The Office of Gift Planning closely with you to discover your passions and bring your charitable goals to life.
