There are many ways to give. We would love the opportunity to speak with you directly about your hopes and dreams, giving goals and intentions.
Gifts to the annual fund are essential to fuel the progress of the College. They provide a way to meet immediate needs for students and faculty when funding is not available from tuition, state or federal funding. Each year, hundreds of alumni and friends make gifts ranging from a few dollars to $10,000 or more. Together they have tremendous impact. Will you consider supporting the College?

A major gift represents not only a greater financial investment in the College of Humanities and Sciences, but demonstrates your commitment to the success of our programs and our ongoing research. Major gifts to the College have been made to endow departmental scholarships, professorships, and support innovative research projects and more. While annual gifts generally support the immediate needs of the university, major gifts provide a long-term financial stability and demonstrate a deeper level of commitment to enriching lives of students and faculty for years to come. To discuss endowed giving opportunities, please contact:
Provide for yourself, your loved ones, and VCU.
Many of us wish we were able to do more to express support for the organizations that mean the most to us. Planned giving, which includes financial and estate planning, allows you to express support without parting with the assets necessary to take care of yourself and your family. Planned giving instruments include bequests and charitable gift annuities which offer tax advantages to you or your heirs. A decision to make a planned gift, such as a bequest, must be carefully considered within the context of your goals, family, values, age, charitable interests, assets, and giving capacity.
