Dear Averett family and friends,
I want to invite you to be a part of something very special. Please join our fast-growing network of supporters who have helped get Averett University’s first-ever comprehensive capital campaign off to such an exciting start.
Remarkably, through our donors’ generosity, we have already raised more than $21 million toward our $25 million goal. And our momentum continues to build as new donors are coming forward to be a part of this inspiring cause.
Just one beautiful dimension of this campaign is that every single gift, regardless of its size, has the power to make a big difference. That’s because every dollar we raise will have an impact on another student and help transform another life.
Your donation may just be the gift that gets us over the finish line.
Averett’s capital campaign is a rare opportunity to be swept up in something bigger than ourselves, and to leave an inspiring legacy for generations of Averett students, alumni, faculty and staff to come.
So please join us. Through teamwork and your generosity, we’re going to accomplish amazing things together.
Tiffany M. Franks

"My scholarships have provided me with the opportunity to be a first generation college student. Without these scholarships I would not have been able to accomplish any of the dreams that I have realized in my time as a Cougar, such as double majoring in accounting and business management while being a four year member of the men’s basketball team."
Callie Burnette, Class of '13
"The scholarships have helped tremendously. I have a younger sibling who is also attending college, so my scholarships have really helped lessen the financial load on my parents and me. I'm so thankful to the donors of my scholarships because they've allowed young people like me to get an excellent education and to pursue the career of our choice."
Brentt Simmons, Class of '13
"Since I came to Averett, my love and passion for music have grown, and I have become a better musician. I have gained knowledge and skills that I will need in my music career. The scholarships I have received have helped me tremendously. Without the generosity of my scholarship donors, paying for tuition would have been very difficult. I'm very grateful to the donors and appreciate their generosity. It means a lot to me that someone was willing to invest in me and believe in me."
Shane Brogden, Class of '14
"The scholarships I receive thanks to Averett's generous donors make college affordable for my family and me. Without these funds, I would be forced to find employment to support my education and not have as much time to study and focus on my schoolwork. I have learned that Averett truly cares about their students and will do anything to help us get our education. I am thankful for every donor who has given and allows me to a part of this exceptional educational experience."
