We know that “family” can mean many things, from biological parents, siblings, or foster families to multi-generational households and extended loved ones. At Virginia Tech, our commitment to inclusivity means we welcome everyone into the Hokie family. And we have so much in common. We desire student access and success, safety and well-being, inclusion and community, and graduates who will thrive in their careers and lead meaningful lives in the spirit of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).
Through the Hokie Family Annual Fund, you can make an immediate and positive impact on your student’s experience from orientation to graduation. In short, the Hokie Family Annual Fund allows you to Impact the Track that your Hokie student is on. This annual giving initiative is a way for you to actively participate in the education of your student.
Gifts to the Hokie Family Annual Fund don’t just improve campus life; they also increase the overall quality of the Virginia Tech experience. Hokie families, past and present, have played a crucial role in helping to make investments in vital university programs and facilities that would not otherwise be possible. Hokie Family Annual Fund gifts of any size will help propel our institution forward and make a difference in the lives of all Virginia Tech students.
Gifts to the Hokie Family Annual Fund support three main areas, all directly connected to the Virginia Tech student experience. Examples of prior Hokie Family Annual Fund support in these areas are:

- Student Emergency Funds
