"The VMI Family." It is a term often encountered when dealing with Virginia Military Institute. It is an expression that embraces not only the Institute's cadets and alumni, but also those who admire and support VMI and its historic mission - its parents, friends, faculty, and staff.
The steadfast and generous support of the Keydet Club’s donors enables VMI to attract, develop, and retain the best young people who accept the challenges of being a VMI cadet-athlete and compete at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics.
The VMI Foundation’s mission is simple: raise, steward, and invest the funds entrusted to it for the sole purpose of advancing Virginia Military Institute. With this private money, the VMI Foundation supports constant improvement of academic and co-curricular programs.
