President’s Reception 2018

Nearly 500 friends of Virginia Commonwealth University gathered May 31 at the Richmond, Virginia, Main Street Station Train Shed for the President’s Reception, an event to honor donor generosity and celebrate the progress of the Make It Real Campaign for VCU. President Michael Rao, Ph.D., announced that the campaign has passed the $600 million mark and thanked guests, including members of the Founder's Society, the President's Club, campaign committees, the alumni board and planned giving donors, for their continued support of VCU. During the evening, attendees enjoyed unique project presentations from students at the schools of Business, Arts, and Engineering, as well as a video illustrating the impact of private philanthropy.
