Help VCU meet the COVID-19 challenge

During this worldwide crisis, Virginia Commonwealth University is focused on providing the best services to our patients and students.

As Central Virginia’s COVID response team, our researchers and caregivers are working around-the-clock to provide resources and care to fight this pandemic. Meanwhile, our faculty and students have transitioned to a completely online teaching and learning environment, which provides its own set of challenges.

Help VCU respond to the unique challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting one of two new funds, the VCU Health COVID-19 Response Fund and the VCU Student Life and Learning Fund. Your gift meets the challenges set by other donors:
