Individuals, organizations, corporations and foundations play an important role in supporting the mission of The Ohio State University Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Programs. In addition to annual gifts, some demonstrate their commitment to rehabilitation programs by establishing permanent funds for research, fellowships or faculty positions, purchasing research equipment, sponsoring special events and underwriting programs for professional and public education. There are many meaningful opportunities to support Ohio State’s Rehabilitation Programs and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Major gifts may be made outright or in memory or honor of others. Contributors at this level are recognized through the annual report, invitations to special events and commemorative naming opportunities in Dodd Hall Inpatient Rehabilitation Services, Outpatient Rehabilitation Programs or with faculty positions in Ohio State’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Examples of major gift opportunities include:
- Bert C. Wiley, MD, Chair in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation – Supports a faculty chair position in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Donate to this fund.
- The Dr. Ernest W. Johnson Professorship – Supports a faculty position in research in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Donate to this fund.
- Endowments – A gift that is invested to provide income for Ohio State’s Rehabilitation Program.
- President's Club – The Ohio State University's largest and most prestigious major donor recognition group.
- Equipment – Because most government grants and contracts do not cover equipment expenses, private support is vital to efficient and effective research. This funding will help Ohio State researchers continue to advance rehabilitation research and our efforts to find new rehabilitation treatments for brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, stroke, amputation and other neurologic and orthopaedic conditions.
