The Barbara A. Muth Fund

Aug. 28, 2018
The Barbara A. Muth Fund was created by Molly and Melissa Muth in honor of their mother.  When asked about their memories of their mother and why they chose to support CHAIRE, they answered, “We were so happy to discover CHAIRE earlier this year and even more thrilled to help support CHAIRE by establishing a fund in our mother’s name.  “Babs” was an animal lover her whole life.  Whether it was Molly and her pony, or Melissa working with veterinarians in high school or training a Hereford heifer for the Little International while at OSU, Mom wanted to hear all the stories!  And of course, squeeze in an OSU football game or two.  When she finally got to Kenya and Tanzania in 1987 to see all the spectacular animals, she was as giddy as a little kid!!  Mom always believed in the power and benefits of human/animal interactions, and supporting an organization like CHAIRE would give her great joy.  “The Barbara A. Muth Fund” combines her love of animals with her love of The Ohio State University.  Perfect!"
