Program Enhancement Fund
This fund is used to enhance and augment the DVM program – it is not used to support research or faculty activities. This fund may be used for new student orientation program expenses and educational programs such as club or school sponsored speaker costs, support for educational equipment or devices, and/or other educational presentations and events. Donors may not direct the use of their gift within the fund. All gifts to the fund will be pooled and not correlated to any particular event or activity. Donors to the fund in a given fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) will be recognized alphabetically by name (no logos) according to donation level when the fund is used in that year.
Professional Development Travel Award Fund
This fund is used to provide travel awards to students to defray costs for DVM students who attend professional development and related activities. These can include, but are not limited to, AVMA Legislative Days, Veterinary Leadership Experience (VLE) and national professional conferences (such as NAVC, WVC, WVMA, AABP, AAEP). The fund will not be used to support travel for externships or the SAVMA Symposium. The Fund must be used for costs associated with travel as defined by state travel policies. Donors may not select recipients or direct their gifts to specific conferences or activities, nor require quid pro quo activities or reports of any kind from supported students. Donors to the fund in a given fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) will be recognized alphabetically by name (no logos) according to donation level when the fund is used in that year.
Awards Banquet and Graduation Breakfast Fund
Each spring the school recognizes the achievements of the graduating class with an awards banquet. The school also hosts a graduation breakfast prior to the investiture ceremony for friends and family of the graduates. Both of these events are time honored traditions that foster good-will and create fond memories for our students, faculty, and staff. The events rely completely on donations from individuals and businesses. All donors to this fund will be recognized in the programs for each event and will be acknowledged alphabetically (no logos) according to donation levels.
Scholarships and Awards
Businesses may support scholarships and awards that are given to our students. The business may name, and establish reasonable selection criteria, for the scholarship/award. The business may not select the scholarship/award recipients nor may it require any activity or report from the recipients. The business may not give any product, book or other item to the recipient(s). For each academic year, scholarship gifts (or notification of commitment to make a gift by January 15) must be received by October 15. Award gifts (or notification of commitment to make a gift by March 30) must be received by February 15 each year.
