Ohio State to donate $181K to child-advocacy charities from NCAA sanctions against Penn State

COLUMBUS— Ohio State University will donate $181,000 to two local child-advocacy organizations from funds it received from the Big Ten Conference’s sanctions against Penn State.

Ohio State today announced it will allocate money to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Center for Family Safety and Healing and the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Franklin County.

The funds stem from sanctions against Penn State that required the school to relinquish $2.3 million of conference bowl revenue the school would have earned had it been allowed to play in the postseason. The 12 schools in the conference, including Penn State, received a share of the money to donate to children-focused charities.

The NCAA imposed landmark sanctions on Penn State following a sweeping child sexual abuse scandal involving retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
