Faculty and staff philanthropy

VCU Police Chief John Venuti served as honorary chair of the 2017 faculty, staff, retiree fundraising campaign. The campaign launched April 3 and concluded May 17, although gifts made throughout fiscal year 2017 are part of the campaign. 

In fiscal year 2016, the faculty, staff and retiree campaign drew 1,757 donors and raised $3.78 million.

The annual campaign is all about how many faculty, staff and retirees make a gift, not how much money we raise. So give as much or as little as you feel comfortable with – what matters is that you get involved. Gifts count through the end of the fiscal year.

You can choose where your support is directed – to any school, department, program, center, scholarship or pre-established gift fund at VCU or VCU Health. You can make that gift online, by payroll deduction or by check.

Checks should be made payable to the VCU/MCV/SOB/SOE Foundation and mailed to VCU Gifts and Records Management, P.O. Box 843042, Richmond, VA 23284-0441.

When you give, "they” give. "They'' are alumni and friends who support the mission of VCU and VCU Health. Making a gift to support VCU is your opportunity to say that you believe in the mission. Your participation demonstrates that VCU is one of the best possible investments for a potential donor's philanthropic support.

Your gift has the power to inspire innovation, encourage excellence and transform dreams into discoveries. Faculty and staff members who donate to the university are ideally positioned to identify areas of need that might not be well supported. Through donations, we can change lives and grow our culture of giving at VCU.

Whether you’re a professor, an administrator or a police officer, this is your community. And we’re all in it together. So please consider supporting VCU today.
