“On Giving Day, we celebrate all the ways that VCU lifts people’s lives here and around the world,” VCU President Michael Rao, Ph.D. said. “We invite alumni, faculty, staff, students, family and friends to join together to make possible the many initiatives at VCU and VCU Health that support our students, our patients and our communities here and beyond.”

Giving Day takes place during VCU’s Philanthropy Week, when students celebrate the many donors who support student scholarships, life-changing research and health care, classroom and lab spaces, art-making and athletic equipment, and more.
