Hello

The donations is not reported on the state return.

Ohio does not have a place for itemized deductions like federal does.

Expert:  Robin D. replied 1 year ago.

The Ohio University Foundation is an institutionally-related, nonprofit, tax exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, and is the repository for all private gifts to Ohio University. Contributions to The Ohio University Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent provided by law for federal filing.

You can designate your gift to any area of the University. From academic departments and colleges, to varsity sports and student activities, the choice is yours.
