Message From The National President   

Greetings Alumni and Friends,

FranklinOn behalf of the Virginia State University Alumni Association (VSUAA), I express my sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the "1000 Trojans Giving $ 100 Campaign" and to all of you who have worked tirelessly to make an investment in Virginia State University (VSU).

Becoming active in the VSUAA is a selfless way to give back to the university and a way to reconnect with fellow alumni as well as students. Join other alumni who are working to make a positive difference for VSU. The Alumni Association is your lifetime connection to your alma mater.

Join a local chapter near you or consider at-large membership which is only . Membership allows you to affiliate with chapters all over the country and abroad and to participate in the many events that take place on campus. Clearly, your continued support has allowed VSU to accomplish great things, but we cannot rest now. Please join my commitment to push forward as we drive to the finish line to help make Virginia State University the very best university it can be. 

On behalf of the entire VSUAA family, and especially our students who directly benefit from your outstanding generosity, I say "Thank You!"

In Trojan Spirit,
Franklin H. Johnson, Jr., MBA
VSUAA National President

Take The VSUAA Alumni Giving Challenge

Take the ChallengeThe VSU Alumni Association started its $ 100,000 fundraising initiative in March 2016 in an effort to match the gift of $ 100,000 that President Abdullah and his wife, Dr. Ahkinyala Cobb-Abdullah, made to VSU in February 2016.

As of August 2018, we have raised $ 83,134.59 toward our goal of $ 100,000.  
That's not bad, but we know we can do a lot better so we challenge all alumni to take the VSUAA Alumni Giving Challenge today by giving $ 100.00 to the VSUAA Endowment Fund.  
Additionally, we are challenging all VSUAA alumni chapters to be represented by a donation.

Alumni participation in giving is the difference toward moving Virginia State University from good to great.  Your gift will go along way toward making this happen.  Therefore, we urge you to make your gift of $ 100.00 today.

Here Are The Two Ways To Give
