Give the Gift of Membership

At the Alumni Association, building community is at the heart of all we do. We’re honored to be part of each Wahoo’s journey, from their first steps on Grounds to long after they graduate. Your child will soon join our community of now more than 250,000 alumni who share a passion for the University of Virginia.

Help your graduate stay connected to UVA by gifting them a Contributing Membership to the Alumni Association. Membership in the Alumni Association is a source of pride for our alumni, a symbol of the bond your graduate will have with UVA and fellow alums.

Contributing Membership rewards our most passionate members with much-loved benefits — including Virginia Magazine and career advising — as well as new, extra special ones like early event registration, gifts and surprises, and an exclusive perks platform for services ranging from travel to entertainment.

By giving this gift, you will know that your graduate is part of a community of people who share a passion for the place they called home.

We are offering a special Contributing Membership rate of $675 for new graduates.
