For the past several months, Virginia Tech employees have donated generously to charities across Virginia through the 2019 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign. Some senior management areas have been particularly creative in how they raised money and encouraged employees to donate.
As the holiday season approaches, we are reminded of the importance of giving back, even if it is in small ways. One way to give back is to donate to a charity that helps make someone else’s holidays great through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.
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.
The final weeks of Virginia Tech’s Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign fall during the holiday season. During this time, it is crucial for charities to receive donations to meet the rising demand for their services.
As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, we are reminded of the importance of giving back to our communities. In the spirit of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), Frank Beamer is confident the Hokie Nation will come together and exceed this year’s goal of $375,000.
In this season of giving, we are reminded of the importance of giving back, even if it is in small ways. A great way to do this is to donate to a charity that is near to your heart through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC). As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday and with only a few weeks remaining in the campaign, employees are encouraged to continue donating.
The 2018 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) is a little over one month out and we have raised $140,000. Although this is a great start, we are slightly behind last year’s percentage of reaching our goal. The campaign runs until Friday, Dec. 14, so we have 53 days remaining. We can do this!
Thanks to the generosity of more than 1,400 of our employees, we not only met our $325,000 goal, we surpassed it, and in record-breaking fashion no less. This year’s total is $24,349 more than we raised last year and the most we have ever raised for the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.
The Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign is the perfect opportunity for us to serve others this holiday season. With only a few weeks left in this year’s campaign, we have raised more than $216,000, thanks to the generosity of our employees.
Remember, every gift, no matter how small, can have a huge impact on our community. With more than 1,000 charities to choose from, including dozens located right here in the New River Valley, you can truly make a difference.
Each officer will run one mile at a time for 24 hours. The team hopes to run a total of 125 miles in support of the university’s goal to raise $325,000 this year for the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.
I am honored and humbled to have been asked to serve as this year’s honorary campaign chair. The annual fundraiser is a chance to serve others. If each employee donates $2 per paycheck, the university will exceed its goal of $325,000.
