OSUDC vs. The World: Buckeye Charge Scholarship Campaign

OSUDC is taking on the world of Alumni Clubs in the first everBuckeye Charge Scholarship Challenge. While the ultimate goal is raising scholarship funds for our Spearman scholarship, the winning club is based on the number of donors! This year, the greater Washington, DC area is pitted against other OSU Alumni Clubs from across the country: Phoenix, Chicago, and New York City. The winning Club receives not only bragging rights, but also a local Buckeye event sponsored by OSUAA!

Buckeye Charge runs through midnight Saturday, November 28.Each individual donor counts! Show the OSUDC board member at your gamewatch your gift confirmation for raffle tickets for our halftime raffles. A $1 contribution gets you 1 ticket, $5 gets you 6 tickets. You can make your contribution any time. Visit our website and watch our social media accounts on Saturday for the live link to donate!
