Save the Date

Join the Virginia Tech community for Giving Day, a 24-hour celebration of the Hokie Spirit and the power of giving back, starting at noon, EST, on February 23. Giving Day is a special opportunity for Virginia Tech students, employees, alumni, family, and friends to come together virtually and show their support for their favorite Virginia Tech departments, programs, student organizations, and teams. You choose where you want your gift to have an impact, and special challenges mean that your gift can go further and do more good than at any other time of the year.


Stay tuned for more details about what Giving Day has in store and how you can help spread the word.
