From Dawn Jefferies, CVC Honorary Chair


I am very excited to announce the start of the 2019 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC)!

I am thrilled to represent Virginia Tech and serve as this year’s honorary campaign chair. Together, as one Hokie Nation, we will do what we do best – live the spirit of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), by serving and supporting the communities where we live and work.

I have been a proud member of our community for nearly 20 years. In my time as a broadcast journalist, I have witnessed many examples of how community support and engagement changes lives. I encourage each of you to visit this website for information on how you can impact those in our areas who may need additional assistance. With approximately 1,000 charities listed, you can see how each of us can impact others in very important ways.

This year’s campaign runs from Sept. 30 to Dec. 13. Since 2010, Virginia Tech employees have donated more than $2.8 million to charities in Blacksburg, the New River Valley, and across Virginia. With this amazing record of accomplishment, I am confident we will come together to not only meet, but exceed this year’s goal of $390,000.

Every dollar counts toward reaching our goal! It’s not about how much you give. It’s about the act of giving itself that makes this campaign so special each year.

To make a donation, visit the online donation site. Paper pledge cards are also available for those who do not have online access.

The university’s annual campaign is administered by the Division of Human Resources and led by a steering team made up of university department representatives. For questions or assistance, please contact your department representative. A list of steering team members is listed on this website.

Thank you for your continued service to Virginia Tech and our community.
