The Pylon Society Logo

Brotherhood, duty, honor, leadership, loyalty, sacrifice, service, and Ut Prosim (That I may serve). These are the ideals emblazoned on the eight pylons of Virginia Tech's most beloved monument, the War Memorial. They are also the ideals held dear by members of the Pylon Society and by generations of loyal Virginia Tech alumni and friends.

The Pylon Society recognizes those donors who demonstrate their belief in these ideals with consistent philanthropic support to academic areas over two or more consecutive years.


Pylon Society membership is achieved after two consecutive academic years of giving to Virginia Tech. An academic year at Virginia Tech runs from July 1 through June 30. Your gift(s) may be to any academic area. Membership is maintained as long as the annual “giving string” is kept alive.
