About

This week is about highlighting just how incredible our student-athletes are — in competition, in the classroom, in the community, and beyond. None of that would be possible without donor support from people like you! Your generosity makes a direct impression on the lives of over 750 student-athletes. Join the Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) team today and make your impact!

You have the choice to give to your favorite team or teams, or you can donate to our unrestricted VAF Annual Fund to ensure all teams and student-athletes receive the support they need.

This year alone, we have won two team NCAA National Championships, numerous individual National Championships, and we are gearing up for an exciting finish to our fall sports and start to our winter sports. We knew this year would require everyone, and we are grateful for those who have stepped up to make a difference. But we are not done. We still have nearly 37 scholarships left to fund this year. We still need your help!

Your contribution during Hoos Making an Impact will support our student-athletes in several ways, but most importantly and directly, your gift will impact scholarships. 

Scholarships change lives: Our student-athletes are not only the recipients of the outstanding education they receive from UVA, but they are also ambassadors of Virginia Athletics through their performance in competition and in the classroom, participation in the Charlottesville community, and then beyond in their own professional development and leadership opportunities after their time at UVA. Follow along this week as we show you some of the awesome things our current and former student-athletes are doing and why our donors love to support them!

Spread the word, encourage others to get involved, and win some great prizes. In order to be successful and meet our $250,000 goal to help fund a portion of our nearly 37 remaining scholarships, WE NEED YOU

Join our campaign as an advocate to assist in sharing Hoos Making an Impact with fans, friends, and future VAF members! See below for five easy steps to join!

  • Create an Account (or if you already have one, log in!): We can only celebrate your hard work if we're able to tell it's you! And we do that by tracking outreach done when you're logged in to GiveCampus. Click 'Log In' at the top of the page and create an account from there!
  • Consider Your Own Gift: Lead by example and make your own gift early. It’s much easier to ask your friends and family to join you in making a gift when you’ve already done it yourself!
  • Offer a Match (or Challenge): Leverage your gift and encourage others to give via a match or challenge. Consider restricting your match or challenge by your class year, affiliation, or to a list of your friends (by email address) to raise the stakes! 
  • Share, Share, Share!: The built-in sharing buttons on the campaign page generate a link that is unique to you. If you share while you're logged in, we can track it and celebrate your impact! Share via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, text message, email, phone call, carrier pigeon … the sky’s the limit!
  • Tell Your Story: Create a personal plea and post it to the campaign page! Film a quick video in which you tell your community why you’re excited about the campaign and why others should get involved! Keep it quick, casual, and fun!

The more gifts you generate, the more prizes you can win! Check out our incentives on the left side of the page.

THANK YOU for your support and for being a part of our team. You are truly Hoos Making an Impact — we could not do what we do without you!
