Why you are needed

We are currently witnessing a monumental shift in the landscape of college athletics as student athletes monetize their Name, Image, and Likeness for earning potential. As Buckeye fans, we want Ohio State to lead the nation in all things - education, community, and athletics.

With YOUR help, Cohesion Foundation can utilize NIL to engage student-athletes with non-profit organizations in our community providing a win-win-win for charitable partners, student-athletes, and the Ohio State athletic program.
