NOTE: Explanation of OSURA Membership Length

OSURA has a donation-based membership model which means to “join” OSURA and enjoy the benefits offered, you need to make a yearly gift/donation of $25 or more to the OSURA Support Fund #315499.

Membership is tracked through the University’s database, which runs on a calendar year.  Members are encouraged to make their gift before December 31 to maintain their sustaining membership for the following year.

New retirees only, who “join” anytime in the calendar year, will not need to renew their membership until the following autumn.  (Example – if you “join” on July 10, 2020, your membership would not expire until December 31, 2021.)

Current sustaining OSURA Annual Members who miss the December 31 deadline are still encouraged to make their gift in the new year. Those who donate between January 1 – June 30, will receive a renewal notification in the fall of the same year.  The expiration date would be December 31 of the following calendar year.

Options for paying dues:

  • Pay online with a credit card. To become a Lifetime Member, change the “gift amount” to $500.
  • Call OSU Alumni Association Engagement Services at 614-292-2281 or 800-762-5646 to make a credit card payment. 
  • Send a check made payable to The Ohio State University Foundation, noting OSURA Fund #315499 in the check memo line. Mail to: The Ohio State University Foundation, c/o Alumni Association, P.O. 710811, Columbus, OH 43271-0811.
