Valdosta State University Office of Annual Giving

Gifts through the Office of Annual Giving go to work immediately to meet the most important needs of the Valdosta State University community.

Gifts to VSU are an investment in the lives of thousands of people who are affected daily by the impact of our university. 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. Each of these are avenues for increased innovation and transfer of knowledge that combine to make the VSU experience unique.

Each gift to VSU represents an investment in the future of Valdosta State University while strengthening the value of each and every VSU degree. Every person who earns a VSU degree has benefited in some way from the generosity of alumni, parents, students and friends who came before them. Please consider making a gift to VSU to ensure that our students continue to strengthen Valdosta State University through their success in the classroom and beyond.
