We count on donations to help support our CreateAthon@VCU event.

We feed and caffeinate the generous students who show up for 24 hours during their spring break to help a deserving nonprofit.

We also use donations to increase our impact for the nonprofits –

it helps pay for printing, and other fees associated

with implementing the great work that students produce.

Support CreateAthon@VCU

We welcome donations of any size or form!

If you choose to donate now, you’ll be redirected to a donation form powered by the VCU network. You will see “VCU Scholarship Campaign” at the top but should read “CreateAthon” on the dropdown menu. We appreciate your contribution.
