Still Not Convinced?...

Do people really donate while they are still students?

Yes! The VSU 1906 Society was inaugurated during 2006, VSU's centennial year and is VSU's student giving program. Colleges and universities all over the world employ student giving programs as a tool to give current students a way to make a difference in their alma mater's future.

I already 'give' to the University when I pay tuition and fees. Why should I give more?

Tuition accounts for just 23% of Valdosta State’s revenue. Your fees help support areas, like athletics, that neither state funding nor tuition support.

If Valdosta State is a public university, doesn't the state cover the rest of the budget?

As a part of the University System of Georgia, VSU is supported in part by the state. But, state support only contributes about 42% of the University's total revenue. VSU depends on people like you to help support the University, so we may continue to grow and develop into the best that we can be.
