Valdosta State University Office of Annual Giving

Welcome to Valdosta State University’s Annual Giving department! Every gift made to VSU is an investment in the lives of thousands and has the power to impact countless individuals. Every year, alumni, parents, students and friends of the university give to provide the foundation for increased scholarship opportunities so that we can attract the best and brightest students; equipment and technology enhancements which aid in cutting edge teaching and learning; and, research support for our highly engaged faculty. These gifts can be designated to any area, college, or division at Valdosta State…or they can be left unrestricted so that the university can direct resources to the greatest need. 
 

Each person who earns a VSU degree has benefited in some way from the generosity of alumni, parents, students and friends who came before them, consider making your gift today!
