Giving to the Student Emergency Fund

Support students in need during COVID-19

We appreciate your interest in and support of VT Engage, but during this crisis, we ask that anyone considering donating to VT Engage instead consider donating to directly support students in need via the Student Emergency Fund.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of our students to lose employment on-campus and within the Blacksburg community. This can cause high levels of anxiety as bills become due and food runs low. Through generous donations provided by many caring Hokies, manages this emergency fund for students who find themselves in immediate financial need.

Any student currently enrolled at Virginia Tech can apply for a one-time grant to help during this trying time. Every gift helps students in need. Head to the university’s secure, online giving page to give today.
