40-Year Milestone Celebration
The Virginia Athletics Foundation honors each of its donors who reach their 40th consecutive year of giving to the Foundation.
The Virginia Athletics Foundation’s Young Alumni Program allows recent graduates to directly impact Virginia Athletics through giving, while taking advantage of a dollar-for-dollar match.
Car Dealer Program
Car Dealers that provide coaches, administrators and staff access to vehicles help ease the cost of recruiting and travel for the athletics department. Participants receive ticket, parking and advertising benefits for their investment.
Working with sports supervisors and the athletics director, head coaches sometimes identify operational needs that arise outside of their annual budgets. When these needs arise, Coaches 10 funds provide a way for donors to support these specific initiatives.
Cavalier Legacy recognizes donors who choose to support Virginia Athletics through financial or estate planning. With planned gifts, donors may be able to make a greater impact than they thought possible during their lifetime.
