Why Give?

The reasons people give are as numerous and diverse as the donors themselves, but every gift – whether large or small, helps secure the promise of Ohio University and the College of Business. Whether it's one inspired moment or a series of experiences culminating in the desire to give back to the College, one thing is certain: your generosity is a measure of our success.
