Celebrating those who invest in the future of CFAES

Estate gifts and the people who make them are part of a deeply rooted tradition at Ohio State. CFAES is grateful to the generous alumni and friends who have remembered Ohio State in their estate plans. We applaud these donors and honor their generosity through the Neil Legacy Society.

The Neil Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have named the university a beneficiary of a planned gift. Named in honor of the Neil family, who made 361 acres of farmland available for what is now known as The Ohio State University, the Neil Legacy Society recognizes the generosity and vision of these individuals.

Donors are invited to campus for an annual event to celebrate their generosity. This year’s event was held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. Dr. Michael V. Drake, 15th president of The Ohio State University, personally thanked donors for their support and commitment. Dr. Giorgio Rizzoni, director of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR), impressed guests with an update on Ohio State’s efforts in sustainable and safe mobility.
