Declining state funding presents an on-going challenge to our operating budget. We continue to expand our research programs and the number of Ph.D. and masters students we serve; however, private funds are increasingly essential for many areas of our program.

We accept general donations for our discretionary use and donations earmarked for specific programs including travel, research, and teaching. There are two ways to give:

  • Give online through the secure gift website. You can donate using a credit card or check. Be sure to indicate the Department of Entomology in the Other Designation field of the Gift Information section. If you wish to restrict your gift to some specific use, please indicate that as well in the Other Designation field.
  • Print the donation form (Download - bottom of page) and mail it with your check to:
    Department of Entomology (0319)
    Price Hall, Rm 216A, Virginia Tech
    170 Drillfield Drive
    Blacksburg, VA 24061 

        Please make your check out to Virginia Tech Foundation, Inc.

If your employer has a matching gift program, please provide that information. 

If you have questions about giving or our specific needs, please feel free to contact us.

We thank all our donors including alumni, corporations, and friends.
