Today is Giving Tuesday!

Throughout the year, many of our events are held in order to raise funds for our own Spearman Scholarship Fund, which helps deserving DC area students offset the cost of their Ohio State education. We also appreciate your direct assistance to our fund. Any donations provided to our fund contribute towards the $75 needed for Sustaining Membership and entry to the football ticket lottery. Today for Giving Tuesday, make your tax-deductible donation to our Spearman Scholarship Fund!
