From the President
Welcome to the VMI Foundation’s website. Here, you will see how important private financial support is to VMI and its cadets and how the trustees, officers, and staff of the VMI Foundation work to ensure that VMI has a generous and steady supply of private money. You also will be able to get information on how to give in support of VMI, the Institute’s current funding needs, and how we do business and relate to our donors.
All of us at the VMI Foundation are proud to work with the other VMI Alumni Agencies—the VMI Keydet Club and the VMI Alumni Association—to serve the VMI Family. Like the faculty, staff, and leaders of VMI, we are dedicated to ensuring that VMI cadets have the finest academic experience in their classrooms and laboratories, that they have extensive athletic opportunities, and that they learn vital lessons from its military system and other facets of its renowned co-curriculum.
Of course, we are mindful that VMI is able to accomplish these goals, to maintain its best traditions, because of the enthusiasm and energy of the members of the VMI Family: our alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. Their dedication and generosity toward VMI are the source of the Institute’s successes and the foundation on which VMI can build for the future.
Thank you for your interest in our work on behalf of VMI and for your support of this extraordinary college.
Yours in The Spirit,
Walton M. Jeffress, Jr. ’68
President, VMI Foundation
