Our Mission

 

At VIU Now, we believe that receiving the proper support and guidance can transform an already bright individual into so much more. We are here to be that support system, and help our recipients reach their fullest potential as they strive towards their ultimate goals. All of our recipients are intelligent, bold, and undeniably personable, making our work at VIU Now incredibly
meaningful and worthwhile.

 

Over the years, our donor contributions have earned us the reputation of being the best Scholarship Fund in the greater Fairfax area — and we couldn’t be any happier with that well deserved distinction that makes the dream of higher education possible.

 

Funding Opportunities

VIU Annual Fund

The VIU Annual Fund is your primary vehicle for giving in support of the University’s educational mission. Since VIU’s founding in 1998, alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, and students have consistently provided resources that are put to work immediately. Each and every year, Annual Fund donors create opportunities for students and faculty where the need is greatest. Gifts to the Annual Fund are among the most important, because they have an immediate impact on the entire VIU community.
