In celebration of 150 years of serving academic excellence as an historically black university, Virginia Union University located in Richmond, Virginia has set aside the week of June 22, 2015 through June 28, 2015 to celebrate its first-ever crowdfunding campaign, 150 Hours of Giving, encouraging students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors and friends to contribute to the university.

The university is accepting donations to the following departments: School of Business, School of Education, Psychology and interdisciplinary science, School of Humanities and Social Science, School of Theology, VUU Athletics, VUU Band, VUU Choir and VUU Museum.

The 150 Hours of Giving will focus on granting opportunities for students and making college affordable and accessible. The campaign will feature Web-based social media components to engage donors.

Virginia Union is committed to making education affordable for students and keeping its promise of a limitless future. "Our goal is to pull the VUU family together to provide opportunities for more of our student," stated Dennis Washington (Vice President for Institutional Advancement).
