These gifts are tax-deductible AND you may choose our Club’s Endowed Scholarship Fund as the recipient of your Sustaining Membership Contribution of $75.00 or more.

Making Your Annual Donation to OSUAA? Well, Great News for all OSU Alumni AND our local OSU Alumni Club of West Michigan

Beginning July 1, 2012, ALL graduates of Ohio State will be members of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, Inc. (OSUAA), the national Alumni Association in Columbus. More than 80 percent of voting members voted to adopt constitutional changes that will change the Association's membership model. Beginning July 1, the Association turned its focus from selling memberships to engaging Ohio State's entire alumni base of nearly half a million graduates.

All Ohio State degree holders, including medical resident graduates, will be considered members of the Association and receive some level of benefit. This includes associate, bachelor, graduate, or honorary degrees. The basic level of membership will receive benefits including e-publications, online library access, affinity discounts, and use of the NEW Association's Alumni Career Management program.

To enjoy more premium benefits, alumni can join the organization annually as a Sustaining Member. Among the premium benefits available are the annual football ticket lottery, a print version of Ohio State Alumni Magazine, and more. To earn this level of membership, a graduate must make a gift or gifts either equal to or more than $75 to the Ohio State fund of his or her choice each year. These gifts are tax-deductible AND the benefit to our local Club is: you may choose our Club’s Endowed Scholarship Fund as the recipient of your Sustaining Membership Contribution of $75.00 or more. On the link above, please search for West Michigan Alumni 607657 to locate our Club’s endowment fund. Thus, the principal balance of our Club’s Endowed Scholarship Fund will grow with each OSUAA Sustaining Membership Contribution that is earmarked for our Fund.

As a Thank You to each local family who designates that your National OSU Alumni Association Annual Sustaining Membership Dues of $75.00 or more be contributed to The Endowed Scholarship Fund #607657 of The OSU Alumni Club of West Michigan, we will extend a 20% discount to you on your local Annual Dues of our OSU Alumni Club of West Michigan.

At this time we are not sure of reporting procedures of these contributions – so we ask that you please notify Membership Chair, President Donna Waters ( OSUWestMI@aol.com ) when you have chosen our Scholarship Fund as the recipient of your Sustaining Membership Contribution, so that we may process your Discount of local Alumni Club Dues. Information about the NEW Alumni Career Management Program, which is available to ALL OSU Alumni, can be accessed at: http://go.osu.edu/AlumniCareerManagement.
