Giving Day as a Student
Did you know that Giving Day is for anyone with a relationship to Virginia Tech- including Students (and your parents)! In truth, students made up over 1,100 of our donors last year! You get to choose EXACTLY which area of campus your gift goes to- from departments, to student organizations, and beyond. This means you get to give wherever means the most. There are also many ways for students to be involved beyond giving a gift- check out all the opportunities below!
Give a Gift
One of the major ways you can participate in Giving Day as a student is as simple as that- give. We aren’t asking you to sacrifice your coffee for the day or make a big gift of $200- in 2018, gifts as small as $5 can add up to make a monumental difference. Plus, if you’re a senior, your gift can count towards your Senior Class Gift as well! Remember that you can give to whichever space on campus means the most to you- you get to choose.
