Honoring the future began many years ago for 756 Virginia Athletics Foundation members.
Since 2011, the Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) has honored each of its donors who reach their 40th consecutive year of giving. Donor giving histories have been officially recorded since 1971, with the first donors reaching their 40th consecutive year of giving in 2010. The annual celebration includes a 40-Year Milestone Dinner and on-field recognition during a football game. There are 756 VAF members who have reached this milestone, many of whom gave for years before giving histories were officially recorded. These VAF members have been loyal supporters of the student-athletes and coaches who represent the University of Virginia and its athletics program. The foundation is grateful for their extraordinary loyalty.
