Ohio State Day of Giving 2020!

This Sunday, March 22, 2020 is the Ohio State Day of Giving! The Ohio State Washington, D.C. Alumni Club raises funds for operating expenses and programming for local alumni in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Local programming includes game day experiences for both football and basketball, our annual spring meeting with a featured guest speaker, student sendoff picnic, dinners with current Ohio State students who visit Washington, D.C. throughout the year and much more. We are also proud to partner with other Big Ten alumni clubs in the Washington, D.C. area to bring together all Big Ten alumni for events such as networking, trivia nights and diversity/cultural experiences. Many of our events also raise funds for our Spearman Scholarship Fund that awards three local area students a one-time scholarship to help with their first-year tuition at Ohio State.

Your contribution to the Washington, D.C. Alumni Club Fund enables us to provide unique, meaningful and diverse programming and experiences to our alumni community in the Washington, D.C. area.

Visit our Ohio State Day of Giving page this Sunday, March 22 to make your tax-deductible contribution!

Attention Engineering Alumni!

You may remember seeing the “Where I Live: Washington, D.C.” feature in a recent issue of the OSUAA Magazine. Now, you can help the COE advancement team create a city guide for DC to be shared with future Engineering graduates who move here. This survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. Thank you for sharing your resources and tips!

Click here to complete the survey.


Beginning on January 1, 2020, the OSUDC membership year now runs on the calendar year from January 1 – December 31. For $25, you are a member of OSUDC; for $75+, you are a member of OSUDC and a  sustaining member of OSUAA, which makes you eligible for OSUAA benefits such as football tickets. Membership dues are tax deductible contributions to our OSUAA current use fund that makes programming available to area alumni. Dues can be paid at one time, or you can set up recurring payments.

We offer two ways to become a member:

Option 1) Yearly membership to Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now

If you simply want to join the Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. you can do so for a modest donation of $25 per year. This option is open to both Ohio State alumni and Ohio State fans.

Option 2) Yearly sustaining membership to OSUAA + Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now

Becoming a sustaining member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association requires a yearly donation of $75 (which makes alumni eligible for football tickets and other great benefits). By allocating a yearly donation of $75 or more to the Alumni Club of Washington, D.C., you will get access to OSUAA benefits and Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. incentives. If you have any questions, please contact our membership chair, Kennedy Kowalski, at membership@osudc.org, or our treasurer, Melissa Harto, at treasurer@osudc.org.
