Charitable University

Charities are critical in our communities. Board members have critical legal duties to ensure the effectiveness of those groups. Charitable University, a new learning platform developed by the Ohio Attorney General's Office, provides tools on some of the most important elements in leading a charitable organization: board governance, governmental filings, financial operations, and fundraising.

Once you enter the Charitable University portal, you will complete a personal registration account in order to access the training materials.

Charitable leaders who complete the training requirements will have their name and organization listed on our web page as a way to salute their efforts to strengthen the charitable sector. They will also receive a completion certificate that can be shared with funders as a way to illustrate their organization’s commitment to sound board governance practices.

Charitable University will be expanded over time with additional materials that we hope you will find helpful.

Please view the following video for more information provided by Attorney General Dave Yost.
