Show your Hokie pride by giving back

Lending a hand is just part of being a Hokie, and there are many ways that you can support the efforts of the college and impact the success of students. Speak at the annual Launch Party. Encourage your company to hire a Hokie intern. Join an advisory board. Fund a Beyond Boundaries scholarship that the university will match.

There are many options for giving, and each one — like you — matters. If you’d like to talk to someone about how you can get involved, please contact us:

Recent Alumni Award

Danielle Gift, winner of the 2019 Recent Alumni Award (pictured here with Associate Professor Eric Wiseman), exemplifies what it means to help other Hokies and stay connected with CNRE. An urban forester with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, Danielle shares career guidance and advice with current students and recruits fellow Hokies for positions in the department.
