We build lifelong relationships by—encouraging people and organizations to get involved, stay informed, and invest in UVA.

Working together, we will:

  • Create and foster collaboration that advances the mission of our University.
  • Inspire a culture of philanthropy among our diverse community of colleagues, alumni and friends.
  • Establish  UVA as the leader in higher education philanthropy.
