President’s Message – Winter 2015



Once again, as the year came to an end, I recognized how lucky the Unverferth House was to have such a strong group of supporters. We received several very generous grants this year from the Safelite Autoglass Foundation, Ohio State’s Service Board and The Jeffrey Company. We had a record response to our current 2015 Friends campaign as well.

As we go forward with our fundraising, I would like to remind everyone that we do have a unique opportunity for donors who want to support the Unverferth House but like to give to The Ohio State University. Donors are able to donate to Ohio State at and designate their gift to one of our funds, operational or endowment.

It is possible to donate appreciated securities at the end of the year as well. This type of giving allows you to receive tax benefits while providing immediate support to our funds. Two benefits to this are avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation as well as earning eligibility for a federal income tax charitable deduction. For more information, please contact Ann Carmichael at the House 294-2969 or at I want to thank each and every one of you listed on the next pages. We could not continue to help families each and every day without you!
