Virginia Tech Giving Day 2021
Help Virginia Tech Spring Forward

As the days get longer, and the first flowers of 2018 start to bloom, Hokies around the world can help the university spring forward with Virginia Tech's first Giving Day. For 24 hours, alumni, students, faculty, staff, families, and friends have the opportunity to come together and make a powerful, joint impact on the future of Virginia Tech. Gifts of any size can make a big impact. Make your gift from noon on March 20 through noon on March 21!

 

What is a Giving Day?

Giving Days are one-day fundraising events. Alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of Virginia Tech are welcome and encouraged to participate from noon on March 20 through noon (EST) on March 21, 2018. The goal is to engage our community to advance the mission of the university while raising critical funding to ensure we continue to build upon our foundations to provide big opportunities for our students. Together, we can help Virginia Tech Spring Forward.

 

Get involved!

  • Make a gift to one or more areas of the university that matter to you.
  • Sign up to be an Ambassador and tell your friends why you wanted to give.
