Although the commonwealth provides funding to Virginia Tech, that funding represents only 39% of the university's yearly budget. Private giving is essential in helping to provide student scholarships, to support and attract qualified faculty, and to fund a wide range of important programs and initiatives. In short, private gifts help ensure that Virginia Tech students receive a quality education and help keep the university competitive with other top institutions. Your support is needed now more than ever.
State budget shortfalls have impacted all of Virginia Tech's colleges, including the College of Engineering and the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering.

If you are affiliated with a company that matches contributions to higher education, your gift to Virginia Tech may be matched, doubled, or -- in some instances -- more than doubled. Since many employers consider matching gifts an employee benefit, your human resource department or personnel office is your best source for more information about your company's matching gift policies and procedures.
