Tributary Gifts

UVa-Wise Tributary Gifts

Tributary gifts provide a beautiful way to honor family or friends, or to remember those who have passed away while supporting The University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Gifts may be designated to an area that would be meaningful to the honoree or to an area where the donor has a passion.

In Honor of Gifts

Gifts to The University of Virginia’s College at Wise may be made in honor of a person or a special event in the life of a loved one. Many choose to honor a particular faculty member, classmate, their parents or friends – anyone who has inspired them, challenged them and helped them to grow. Others honor birthdays, anniversaries and many other special occasions. Just be sure to indicate the full name of the person you wish to honor and the College will notify them of your kindness. Honorary gifts are listed for the current fiscal year, July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018.

In Memory of Gifts

Gifts to the College may also be made in memory of a person who has affected the life of the donor or at the passing of a family, friend or colleague. Memorial gifts are a beautiful and loving way to pay special tribute to a loved one. Please indicate the full name of the person and who you would like us to let know of your gift.  Memorial gifts are listed for the current fiscal year, July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018.
