Dear colleagues,

Through the contributions of nearly 1,550 faculty and staff, we are excited to announce that we exceeded our 2018 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign goal of $375,000. We raised a total of $379,431. Many thanks to each and everyone who supported this year’s campaign.

In addition to exceeding our overall goal, the following colleges and senior management areas either exceeded or met their individual goals: College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, College of Natural Resources and Environment, Office of the President, Pamplin College of Business, University Libraries, Vice President for Advancement, Vice President for Finance and CFO, Vice President for Health Sciences and Technology, Vice President for Human Resources, Vice President for Information Technology, Vice President for Outreach and International Affairs, and Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.

CVC donations will benefit more than 1,000 charitable organizations through either the Commonwealth’s general fund or through direct donations by you. Those contributions will make an invaluable difference for these organizations and for the communities and citizens they serve.

As a thank you for your generous contributions to the campaign, all employees who made donations before the end of the campaign qualified for entry into our giveaway contest and had a chance to win one of four prizes. Congratulations to our giveaway winners who have been contacted, and thank you again for your contributions to the campaign!

We are incredibly proud of how the Virginia Tech community came together to support very deserving causes and improve the lives of those in need in the spirit of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

Thank you again for your service to Virginia Tech and the community. We wish you and your families a very happy holiday season. Let’s go, Hokies!

Frank Beamer, 2018 CVC Honorary Chair, and the CVC Steering Team
