PAYMENT PLANS You can meet your desired giving level to the Hokie Scholarship Fund before the early deadline of December 21 or the final membership benefits deadline of March 1 by setting up a payment plan. There are multiple ways to do this, including HokieMatic/electronic draft, monthly payment plans, and credit card recurring payments. Payroll deduction is also available exclusively for Virginia Tech employees. To set up a HokieMatic draft, credit card recurring payment, indefinite monthly payment plans, or payroll deduction, please call the Hokie Club at 1(800) VATECH4. If you would like to setup a payment plan that concludes at the end of the Drive Year on March 1, 2023, you can go to to set up your plan, or feel free to call the Hokie Club offices. Please note that any payment plans set up online will conclude on March 1, 2023, and will need to be reset again at the start of the new Drive Year. MAIL Mail in a Hokie Scholarship Fund renewal form along with your payment information, either by check or credit card. If paying by check, make payable to “VTAF”. Please include your Hokie Club account number on the memo line if you are a current donor and your current mailing address. Mailing Address: Virginia Tech Athletic Fund P.O. Box 10307 Blacksburg, VA 24062-0307 MATCHING GIFTS Increase your level of giving by matching your gift with charitable contributions from your employer. Please note, with recent tax law changes, your company’s matching gift program may no longer match gifts that allow for ticket benefits. Please consult with your employer for more information. GIFTS OF SECURITIES Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. are accepted and appreciated by the Virginia Tech Athletic Fund. These gifts typically involve publicly traded shares, such as those traded on the major exchanges and over the counter, as well as most mutual funds. Gifts of privately held stock, though more complex, are also possible. Supporting Virginia Tech with a gift of securities can provide significant tax benefits for the donor—bypassing capital gains taxes and providing a valuable income tax deduction—both of which effectively reduce the cost of making a gift. Contact the Virginia Tech Foundation at 540-231-2861 for more information. PLANNED OR REAL ESTATE GIFTS Gifts in the form of life income gifts (Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Gift Annuity), charitable lead trusts, and/or bequests are common ways to state your intentions of leaving a future gift to Virginia Tech Athletics while receiving substantial income, estate, and gift tax benefits now.
