“My classes have carried me from school buildings to streams, mountainsides, and a number of opportunities I would have never dreamed possible.”
If you want to understand the impact of donors who step forward on Giving Day to support the College of Natural Resources and Environment (CNRE), in the words of a student, this is it.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, faculty can purchase equipment for lab and field experience classes, graduate students can share their triumphs at professional meetings, and students can deliver elementary school outreach programs that nurture the next generation of conservationists.
“I am the first in my family to attend college, and every opportunity I receive reflects back on all of the sacrifices my parents have made to allow me to attend such a wonderful university as Virginia Tech.”
Donor support makes a difference every day in CNRE because it makes college possible. Make a gift to CNRE and you can fund a scholarship or fellowship for a hard-working student. You’ll supplement what students' families provide and allow them to experience opportunities like overseas study and research.
You can also help our students belong. This past year, donor funds provided events for new first-year and transfer students to help them meet classmates and connect with faculty.
“I hope to in some way change the world.”
Doesn’t everyone? It’s what we strive for every day in CNRE. It’s what you can do on Giving Day.
Support CNRE your way on Giving Day and designate your gift for the college, the scholarship fund, an academic department, the Leadership Institute, or the Virginia Master Naturalists. Thank you — every gift matters.
