Planned Giving

Why Give?

"The Reputation of the German Club is a glorious heritage bequeathed by those German Club men who have gone before you. This proud and honorable Reputation comes to you as a vibrant challenge out of the past and into the present to summon from this moment forward the very best that is within you.”

Each of us contribute to the legacy of the German Club. We stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. Their passion for the German Club and their commitment of time, energy, and resources has established the strong foundation that we enjoy today. Join those who have gone before you to perpetuate the German Club into the future by making a planned gift. Below are some Virginia Tech Foundation resources to learn more about planned giving.
