Virginia Tech’s annual Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising effort in which participation and engagement are top priorities, is filled with opportunities and challenges that allow every contribution, no matter its amount, to make an impact.

At the veterinary college, our focus on the health and well-being of animals, humans, and communities remains steadfast. With that mission at the heart of everything we do, all of our goals on Giving Day were surpassed, thanks to several aspirational challenges from generous community members and a tremendous outpouring of support from alumni, faculty, staff, and friends.

The beneficiaries of our community’s generosity span our new Animal Cancer Care and Research Center, which received nearly $20,000 to continue its fight against cancer, and the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center, whose work was bolstered by a remarkable gift of $560,000 from two longtime clients.

The college is truly humbled by the community support—every donor, every dollar—received on Giving Day. Thank you for embracing our mission!
