About the Office of Engagement & University Annual Giving

Engagement & University Annual Giving fosters lifelong relationships with alumni, parents, students, and friends, strengthening their connections with the University by helping them them stay informed, involved, and invested in their UVA passions. Our team creates and supports nearly 1,400 events each year in cities and communities around the globe that include in-person and digital engagement opportunities. We create fundraising strategies, in partnership with schools and programs across Grounds, that help increase donor participation and philanthropic support of the University.

Our team is comprised of 26 University and 55 student employees and coordinates events and programs with over 1,000 alumni, parent, and student volunteers. We work together to create world class networks, engagement, learning, and giving opportunities through five programs: Alumni & Parent Travel, HoosNetwork, Lifetime Learning, University Annual Giving, and UVA Clubs.
