Funding a Scholarship Through a Bequest
Through their bequest, the couple chose to fund scholarships for students to attend Ohio University's Eastern Campus. The scholarships will provide several promising high school students from Southeast region with the opportunity to attend college. "The decision and process of giving was very easy - the administration was especially engaging. We know that this scholarship will enable students to do something truly great for their communities," they said. Scholarships are a meaningful way to give back to Ohio University, and they also provide students an opportunity that may not have otherwise been available to them.
Including Ohio University in your estate plans is a wonderful way to support the university and the people of southeast Ohio for generations to come. With the lasting legacy provided by gifts from alumni and friends, Ohio University can continue to recruit talented young people, attract talented faculty, sustain its mission, and provide a bright future.
