Believe in the Mission

Annual giving and unrestricted endowment support from alumni and friends provide the Institute with the resources it needs to meet new challenges and take advantage of new opportunities.

Cadets Present ArmsAnnual Giving: Gifts to the Foundation Fund and Keydet Club go to work immediately on behalf of cadets, ensuring the progress of academic, athletic, and co-curricular programs that give VMI its extraordinary character and a well-earned place among the nation’s top colleges. Annual unrestricted support is particularly vital to the success of VMI athletics, since State law prohibits the spending of public funds on intercollegiate athletics.

Unrestricted endowments: These permanent funds are among the most important for VMI’s future, providing resources for the Institute’s long-term advancement and helping fulfill its mission in the coming decades.
