Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back that rallies our donors, alumni, staff, faculty, students, and volunteers around a common cause. 

Our common cause is Vermont State University, and this year we are asking you to make a gift to the fund of your choice in honor of the people who made your experience special. Your gift can be dedicated to any member of our community – past or present – and could be in honor of your favorite professor, coach, advisor, or friend.

Whether you attended classes at Castleton, Johnson, Lyndon, Randolph, Williston, online, or a distance learning site, we hope that you met someone there who was instrumental in changing your life. Make a gift in their honor or memory of that person today! Your donation directly supports our current students and benefits our community.

Thank You For Supporting VTSU Students!

While we didn't quite meet our donor goal, we did raise over $37,000 to support athletics, scholarships, arts programs, and a variety of other important initiatives on our campuses. We are so grateful for your support! Thank you!
