Meet Virginia Tech's
All-American
Donors


The All-American donors you see below do more than cheer on their favorite Hokie team. Each year, thousands upon thousands of them support excellence in the classroom, in the lab, and all across campus by making a gift to The Campaign for Virginia Tech: Invent the Future. That support plays a critical role in our continued success, and strengthens our reputation as one of the nation’s finest institutes of higher learning.

Browse their cards and read their stories here, and then find out how you can be a part of our All-American Team of donors.
