The Thomas E. Rardin Family Practice Center Fund was established November 30, 1979, by the Board of Trustees of The Ohio State University with gifts to The Ohio State University Development Fund from alumni and other friends of the Department of Family Medicine, The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
All gifts are to be invested in the University’s Permanent Endowment Fund, under the rules and regulations adopted by the Board of Trustees of The Ohio State University, with the right to invest and reinvest as occasion dictates.
The purpose of this fund is for the establishment, construction and maintenance of a facility to be known as the Thomas E. Rardin Family Medicine Center. Funds contained therein are to be used to provide all or a portion of the cost of developing, building, equipping and maintaining the proposed center. Principal as well as income may be used for this purpose with the approval of the Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine and the Dean of the College of Medicine.
Should the need for this fund cease to exist or so diminish as to provide unused income, then the income may be used for any purpose whatsoever as determined by the Board of Trustees, with preference being given to the recommendations made by the Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine.
