The impact of community support
Each year, Virginia Tech’s Giving Day provides the opportunity for the community to come together, showing that gifts of all amounts truly do make a difference. The impact is doubled when generous community members pledge extra dollars that unlock when we hit participation milestones.
During Virginia Tech’s last Giving Day, two key partners stepped up to the plate initiating support for all three of our hospitals. An estate distribution from Jack James, Jr. for $42,500 inspired an outpouring of support for our hospital system, resulting in hundreds of donors coming together to support the expansion of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) in Blacksburg and the care provided by the Animal Cancer Care and Research Center (ACCRC) in Roanoke. The Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center (EMC) in Leesburg was not left out, as a commitment of $8,000 from loyal clients Linda Dorsey and James Satterwhite was unlocked as EMC partners ponied up!
Don’t miss out on your chance to join the #VTHBandanaWagon again this year on VT’s Giving Day as we continue our campaign for the VTH expansion.
