Give to the Department of Horticulture

The history of Horticulture at Virginia Tech extends back to the very first classes offered in 1872. Each and every graduate and friend of the department is a part of that history. Whether you spent time with us as an undergraduate, graduate, or have come to know us later in life we are glad to have you share in Horticulture at Virginia Tech. While we are grateful for the state funding we receive, private support is absolutely essential for us to move forward and keep Virginia Tech an innovative leader in Horticulture education, research, and engagement. Your support is important to us and we work hard to be responsible stewards of your gifts—both your gifts of time and your financial gifts. There are many ways you can make a difference in our programs. If you would like additional information about specific giving opportunities, or just to talk about our plans for the future, please contact me or Vernon Meacham (at our college development office) at any time.

With thanks for many great friends,

Richard Veilleux, Department Head Department of Horticulture
