Virginia Tech Education Foundation


Historical Note

The VPI Educational Foundation was established by authority of the Board of Visitors in 1948 as a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation to "work toward increasing gifts and endowments made to the college." Dr. John Hutcheson was appointed as the first president of the Foundation. Hutcheson organized a Board of Directors for the Foundation composed of representatives from the administration, Board of Visitors, Alumni Association, and business leaders from inside and outside the state. In 1983, the Foundation's name was changed to the Virginia Tech Educational Foundation, Inc.
