      VSU Alumni and Friends Black Tie Gala

      October 25, 2018 Dear Prospective Sponsors, Donors and Alumni: The Virginia State University Foundation would like to thank you for your previous generous support of Virginia State University (VSU). Through the support of our donors, the Foundation has assisted Virginia State University in awarding scholarships to young men and women who have proven to be among the Nation’s best and brightest. On May 17, 2019, the Foundation will host its inaugural scholarship gala to continue this legacy with the proceeds benefitting tuition assistance. We hope we can count on your support as a donor or sponsor to help make this signature fundraising event a success. In Regional Universities South, U.S. News and World Reports ranked VSU #29 in Top Public Schools and #19 in all Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We are proud of these designations. Our students are doing equally well. For example: VSU School of Business students won 5 first place and 7 second place awards in competition among Virginia universities and placed in the top ten among 300+ business schools nationally. VSU School of Engineering students participated in the NASA Robotic Mining competition at the Kennedy Space Center. VSU students majoring in mathematics studied abroad in Thailand. VSU students participated in “Discover Medicine in Italy” in Rome, Italy. Over 490+ students are enrolled in the VSU Honors Program which is designed for the most academically talented and highly motivated undergraduate students. The Virginia State University Foundation was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia on March 4, 1968 and granted tax exemption under Section 501(c) 3 status of the Internal Revenue code. The purpose of the Foundation is to support the mission of Virginia State University by receiving, managing and distributing donations and contributions that aid in the enhancement and growth of the University. To fulfill our mission, we need and would greatly appreciate your support. Enclosed please find our Donation and Sponsorship Package. It includes all the information you will need to become a sponsor or a patron, to place an ad in our program journal, and to purchase tickets. Please review this information and select a donation option by March 31, 2019. For additional information please email Dr. Nardos E.
