You can make a vital impact on the lives of over 600 student-athletes in Blacksburg.

This is such an important time for donors to make an impact and accumulate priority points!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW - What is The Hokie Club?

Yes! As we continue to "Reach for Excellence," your contribution, no matter the size,  is the single best way to help us continue our positive momentum and impact the lives of Hokie student-athletes.

Any gift to any fund for a Virginia Tech Athletics program makes you a Hokie Club member! However, to qualify for annual benefits, a priority ranking, and a membership level, a minimum gift of $25 to the Hokie Scholarship Fund is required.

Your philanthropic contributions to Virginia Tech Athletics go directly into enhancing the student-athlete experience in Blacksburg in areas such as scholarship and educational support, leadership development, student-athlete wellness, and other programmatic needs for our 22 varsity sports. Your investment in Virginia Tech Athletics is helping make lifelong memories for nearly 600 Hokie student-athletes.

We always encourage you to consult your tax advisor when making philanthropic gifts, however, as a general rule of thumb: Non-seat related contributions including gifts to capital projects, endowments, and Hokie Scholarship Fund gifts that exceed your minimum seat requirement are considered a charitable donation to a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization. Again, please consult a tax advisor on the deductibility of your gift(s).

NUMBERS THAT MATTER
Cost of Excellence
 

Your gifts to Virginia Tech Athletics, specifically the Hokie Scholarship Fund, allow our student-athletes to pursue comprehensive success not only in competition, but in the classroom and the community. As we continue to compete directly with our peers in the Atlantic Coast Conference, your gifts allow our programs to Reach for Excellence.

Seating & Parking
 
All season ticket holders for Virginia Tech Football and Basketball are required to make a per-seat gift to the Hokie Scholarship Fund by March 1, 2024. This is also the deadline to renew/order football and women's basketball season tickets, as well as a men's basketball season ticket membership. 2024 is a reseating year, which means all seats in Lane Stadium and Cassell Coliseum and parking locations will be reset and reorganized based on priority point rank.

Please check out the giving requirements for your desired seat or parking location in the tabs below. Because 2024 is a reseating year, all season ticket holders will be required to pay the lowest price per ticket during the renewal process and will pay any additional costs during the reseat process.

The reseating process will take place in Spring and Summer 2024. All ticket holders will receive an email in the late spring for their seating/parking selection appointment, in which they will have a chance to lock in their seating and parking choices for the next three years.

Included for next year is complimentary chairbacks for football season ticket holders in price levels 1-6 in Lane Stadium.
