Virginia Tech Giving Day

Giving Day is Virginia Tech’s annual 24-hour giving challenge!  All Virginia Tech colleges and departments participate, and as the driver of VT’s land-grant mission, Virginia Cooperative Extension will participate – as well as its youth development organization, 4-H. This year, we have our own Giving Day donation page.

Gifts will go to the Center you designate.   On this day it’s as much about the number of donors as it is the amount.  The Centers are in a competition to see who can get the most donors (not amount) and the winner will receive and extra $2,500.  Of course the amount matters but a donor can give as little as $5.

The members of the Northern Virginia 4-H Center Board of Directors will generously match the first $5,000 in gifts made to the Northern Virginia 4-H Center annual fund.  Double your impact by making your gift today.

So how about supporting Northern Virginia 4-H Center on giving day? Go to:  https://givingday.vt.edu/giving-day/8755/donate?dept=13973 and make your donation now through noon Wednesday March 20.  Your 4-H Center and I appreciate the difference you are making and will continue to make for the future of our youth.
