Ohio Dominican University has partnered with The Catholic Foundation to engage with alumni and friends of the University who are considering supporting ODU through a planned gift.
A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. The Catholic Foundation offers expertise in the areas of endowments, planned giving and bequests.
This partnership allows ODU’s advancement team to focus on gift cultivation and annual giving efforts, while providing donors with access to the vast resources and knowledge of the Foundation’s staff as they consider future gifts and long-term planning to benefit the University.
“As Central Ohio’s only Catholic university, we are proud and honored to partner with The Catholic Foundation to steward the planned giving intentions of alumni and friends,” said Mark Cooper, ODU’s Vice President for Advancement and External Relations. “I look forward to our partnership with The Catholic Foundation’s talented staff in using their expertise and experience to shepherd our donors through the giving options that best fit their individual philanthropic goals.”
