Giving to Periodontology
With shrinking State budgets, financial help is needed to support
the mission of the Division of Periodontology. The majority of
renovations that have been completed in Periodontology are due to
the generosity of alumni, faculty, industry and friends of the
Division of Periodontology. There is no doubt that the quality of
education provided by the Division of Periodontology is linked to the
philanthropy of the alumni and friends of the Division. The faculty
and students of the Division want to thank all of those
individuals who have contributed and will contribute in the future.
Listed below are some of the funds that you can contribute gifts.
The George R. App Periodontal Endowment Fund: Interest from
the Endowment is used to support graduate student education and
development with special interest in providing funds for travel to
meetings by Ohio State University periodontal graduate students.
Periodontal Research and Training Fund: This fund is used to
support a wide variety of periodontal activities by the Division of
Periodontology in the College of Dentistry. More specifically this fund
is used for but not limited to the purchase of equipment for the
graduate program, support of alumni activities (e.g. the annual AAP
Buckeye Reception, CE courses, mailings, etc.), endowment of
graduate research projects, purchase of food for graduate student
Endowed Chair in Periodontology: Alumni and friends of the
Division of Periodontology are currently underway to collecting $1.5
million for a faculty endowment. Once the endowment has been fully
funded at the respective amount, the principle of the fund produces
a four percent annual return to the Division to use to supplement the
salary of the faculty member named to the respective endowed
position. The income resulting from the endowment not only provides
an important adjustment to the respective faculty member’s salary,
but the prestige that accompanies an endowed faculty position would
help with the recruitment of additional high quality faculty in the
future. For more information, please contact Colleen Garland,
Director of Development and Alumni Affairs, at (614) 366-4990.
The Lewis Claman Periodontal Endowment Fund: Interest from the
Endowment will be used to support an award for OSU dental students
who exhibit clinical excellence in periodontics. Special
consideration will be given to students who want to choose a career
in academic periodontics.
