SOE Annual Fund Portal                                                                  
At the VCU School of Education, we understand that the identification, engagement, solicitation, stewardship and appropriate and impactful use of philanthropic support is the responsibility of all members of the school. We refer to this behavior as a Culture of Philanthropy.

Building this culture is easy to accomplish when we remind ourselves that donors give freely to support our mission. As a reminder, these funds come from our annual giving program and our endowment. An average annual gift is $75. We owe it to our many donors to use these funds to advance the mission and vision of our school. Let us know if you would like to help build our base of donors.

This portal was designed to facilitate our Culture of Philanthropy as it allows for our transparent approach to appropriately use philanthropic support, steward our donors and share the impact of their investments with them. Led by the Office of Development, Alumni and Student Engagement, these funds are raised by the entire school community to support student & staff support, faculty development, research, Dean's initiatives, school-wide initiatives, and alumni & student engagement.
