Estate and Gift Planning

Through estate and gift planning, you can create an enduring legacy that will give future generations access to the unparalleled array of cross-cultural programming offered and produced by the Wex. You can play a vital part in ensuring that the Wex will continue to surprise and provoke, spark discussion and debate, and enhance education and quality of life for all ages and backgrounds.

Together with Ohio State’s Office of Estate and Gift Planning, we can help you find the right giving strategy to meet your charitable and financial needs. Many of these unique methods offer significant tax savings, including a current income tax charitable deduction, possible reduction in estate tax liability, and capital gains tax savings. You can even choose options that increase income, either for yourself or loved ones. Learn more.

Endowment Support

A contribution to the Wexner Center’s endowment helps to ensure the Wex’s long-term sustainability and financial security. It’s an investment in one of our region’s cultural treasures that will touch countless lives for generations to come. Gifts may be made to existing endowments and new endowments can be established with minimum gifts of $100,000.

Naming Opportunities

Choose from a variety of naming opportunities, from endowed curator positions to spaces throughout the center.
