Giving to Mechanical Engineering

While Virginia Tech is a state university, the commonwealth does not fund the full operation of the school. Student scholarships, student projects, new program seeding, outreach activities, and many other things are supported by gifts from alumni and friends. Your generosity provides the excellence that Virginia Tech offers.

You can securely make a pledge, make a payment on an existing pledge, make a gift using your credit card, or request information on donating securities, making a planned gift or using electronic funds transfer from your checking account, via the online pledging form.

If you are a regular contributor to the Department, then we send our sincere thanks, and ask for your continued support. If you are not, please consider being a part of the progress of one of the nation’s best mechanical engineering departments.

Ensuring your gift goes to the Department of Mechanical Engineering

On the donation site, you can be sure that your pledge is credited to mechanical engineering by setting up the "select an area" dropdown to indicate "College of Engineering" and "Mechanical Engineering Department Annual Fund" as below:

Pledge configuration: select College of Engineering, and then Mechanical Engineering

Thank you for your willingness to partner with us.
