Limited Founder Les Wexner Gives OSU $100 Million
The founder of Victoria’s Secret parent company Limited Brands Inc. is giving a record-shattering $100 million gift to Ohio State University.
The donation from Les Wexner and the Limited Brands Foundation was announced by Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee in an e-mail Wednesday morning.

Columbus-based Limited operates Bath and Body Works and other retail chains.
