The mission statement of the club defines four major goals:
1) Have fun
2) Build on our ever growing Buckeye family in Indy
3) Provide scholarships for local students
4) Offer community Services
Below are the detailed programs targeted to achieve those four goals:
The club organizes numerous fun events during the year that attracts members and non-members. Such events are football and basketball game watches, football game trips to Columbus and to Ohio State games at Purdue and Indiana, our annual celebrity golf outing, a summer picnic, a spring brunch, wine bottling, and other smaller events such as local sports events.
Growing the club
The club has made significant steps in the last year to reach out for more members. We have created a magnificent website that improves the communication to our members, and Buckeye fans in general. We have also added credit card transaction capability to the website to ease paying dues and selling merchandise. We have also printed club business cards that are handed out to potential members and also at game watches.
Through our numerous fund raising events during the year, we have been able to raise a significant amount of money to fund our scholarship fund. We have a committee that reviews applications from local students that are already accepted at Ohio State and awards scholarships to four students every year.
The club has partnered with local charities for it’s annual celebrity golf outing to raise funds for both our scholarship fund and for the community. The club also participates in food drives on a regular basis.
