At Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC, we advance science as a community, and our donors join us in supporting the work! 

Join us from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, in the Riverside 4 atrium for a celebration of giving, including food, games and fun. You are invited to participate in Giving Day alongside our many donors and show your pride in what we do. Help us reach our goal of being the Virginia Tech unit with the highest participation rate from our own faculty, staff and students.

By participating you will gain access to our Giving Day Game Room where you can challenge colleagues to a friendly game of ping-pong, giant Jenga, and many other games, as well as grab Fralin Biomedical Research Institute swag and sweet treats!

We will also gather messages of gratitude to share with external donors. Together we make a lasting impact that advances innovation and science!

How to give

Gifts that count toward our Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Giving Day leaderboard can be made starting at noon, EST, on Feb. 21, through noon, EST, on Feb. 22, at this link. Advancement team members will be available during the celebration in Riverside 4 to help you make your contribution.

Philanthropy is one of the drivers behind our science at the institute. New ideas require early-stage findings, and often those projects aren’t covered by other grants. You can make a gift to any part of the mission of Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, or you can support the Seale Innovation Fund awards in particular, to drive innovation.

In addition, your gift will help unlock up to $37,500 for various donor-funded Fralin Biomedical Research Institute initiatives. We need your support today to fuel innovation and support leading-edge research and advance health through science.
