The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges is the national leader in providing unrestricted gifts and student scholarships to Ohio's independent colleges and universities.


The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC) was founded in 1950 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization representing higher education in Ohio.

OFIC solicits corporate donations and distributes funds to member universities to help students with financial need — impacting local economies and providing opportunities for corporations to strengthen and multiply their pool of future

college-educated workers. These gifts enhance the higher education experience for our 90,000 students as they develop the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the national and international workforce.

Your gift to OFIC is an investment in the workforce of the future and has direct economic impact on your local community.
