10 Weeks to 10,000 

A Membership Drive

It all starts with one: one pass...one catch...one shot...ONE MEMBER.

To close out an incredible year for Virginia Athletics, we are pushing to grow VAF membership to 10,000. To join, simply make a donation to the VAF Annual Fund. Every gift counts, no matter the size. We need your help to continue the winning tradition at Virginia that we have all come to know and love. If you are a current donor, thank you. Please consider becoming an advocate and sharing your story with others. If you are not a current donor, please consider joining our team. For more information on giving levels and benefits associated with them, visit www.VirginiaAthleticsFoundation.com. 

The University of Virginia has 27 varsity sports and 750 student-athletes. Those programs collectively have earned 27 National Championships, including two in 2019 for Men's Basketball and Men's Lacrosse, as well as 139 ACC Championships, including two in 2019 for Rowing and Men's Lacrosse. Our teams are consistently top ranked nationally, while our student-athletes continue to impress in the classroom, achieving a 94% NCAA graduation success rate - the highest since the NCAA began tracking GSR. The Virginia Athletics Foundation fully funds the 316.6 scholarships allowed by the NCAA across our 25 NCAA sanctioned varsity programs, as well as provides operational and academic support for all 27 sports. 

Championship teams require championship support.
