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 go directly to student programming and activities not covered by tuition and fees. With your generous support, we are able to offer additional resources, programs, services, events, and activities throughout the year that enhance learning and add value. 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 Support, Access, and Success:
- Student Emergency Funds
- Transition Events
- Student Diversity Summit
- Exam Study Breaks
- Global/Intercultural Competencies Project
