Annual Giving

Office of Annual Giving

Support the Annual Fund

Each year Vanderbilt relies on gifts to the annual fund from alumni, parents and friends to meet the immediate needs of our schools and programs. These gifts play a tremendous role in our ability to teach, discover and lead.

Now through December 31, 2017, when you make a gift, we’ll send you a pair of limited-edition Vanderbilt socks* as our way of saying thanks. You are Vanderbilt—heart and sole!

You can be proud of Vanderbilt and the role you play in its future. By making a gift, you help us offer exceptional opportunities for our current and future students, as well as our faculty and staff. 

*All households that make a gift of $35 or more will be sent ONE pair of socks per gift transaction. For gifts under $53.50, the fair market value of the item will reduce the tax credit of your gift, in accordance with federal tax regulations. If you wish to decline the socks and receive full tax credit for your gift, please indicate that by making a note in the comments section of the online giving form.
