Ways to give

Donors have several options in making a gift to VCU. Please explore these avenues and decide which is best for you.

Named gift opportunities
Make an endowed gift and you will create a lasting legacy that will pay dividends to VCU in perpetuity.

Annual gifts
Make a one-time gift (that we hope you’ll give each year!) to support an area of your choice.

Matching gifts
Many companies will match a gift made by you or your spouse, doubling – or sometimes tripling – your investment. 

Planned Giving
By including VCU in your will or trust, naming VCU as a beneficiary of your retirement or other account, or taking advantage of other strategic giving opportunities, your gift will have a real, lasting impact.

Stock gifts
Giving securities is an easy and tax-wise way to show your support for Virginia Commonwealth University.

Tribute and memorial gifts
Whether you want to make a donation in honor of someone for their birthday or donate in memory of a loved one or friend, please know that your gift will go to work right away.

Payroll deduction
VCU employees can give directly from their paychecks.
