Day of Giving provides Buckeye Nation the opportunity to make an impact
Gretchen Klingler served six years in the Air Force, deployed overseas to Afghanistan, Djibouti and Iraq, and helps veterans transition to life on The Ohio State University campus. Now she’s asking for Buckeye Nation to consider supporting student veterans at Ohio State.
“I think we have an amazing group of people who are working here to ensure veterans have success on campus, and by continuing to support veterans on campus, it shows how important it is to Ohio State to see us succeed,” Klingler said.
Veteran services is one of the areas of emphasis for this year’s Ohio State Day of Giving. On February 28, the 24-hour event is a chance for Buckeyes to come together and support causes for which they are passionate. Buckeyes can give back and pay forward in support of their favorite college or program.
This year, the university is highlighting the opportunity to support causes that:
- Fight the opioid epidemic,
- Feed a student in need,
- Find a cure for cancer,
- Save shelter animals, and
- Help our heroes graduate.
In addition to these causes, donations can be designated for a preferred college or school, a specific research initiative or a student program. The Day of Giving website offers the opportunity to select from a list of colleges, schools and units.
