The Virginia Athletics Foundation honors each of its donors who reach their 40th and 50th consecutive years of giving to the Foundation. Donor giving histories have been officially recorded since 1971, with the first donors reaching their 40th consecutive year of giving in 2010 and their 50th consecutive year of giving in 2020.
The weekend celebration includes a Milestone Dinner and on-field recognition during a football game. To date, 925 VAF donors have reached their 40-year milestone, and 183 donors have reached their 50-year milestone, many of whom gave for years before giving histories were officially recorded. These VAF members have been loyal supporters of the student-athletes and coaches who represent the University of Virginia and its athletics program. The Foundation is grateful for their extraordinary loyalty.
