From an email this week:
On behalf of the Virginia Tech Department of Athletics and the Hokie Club, we are excited to share that the "Drive for 25" campaign is nearing completion of the initial mark!
Launched in 2016, Drive for 25 was created in the hopes of bolstering the Hokie Club to 25,000 members on an annual basis. As the end of January approaches, membership in the Hokie Club is approaching 23,500. While the goal is in sight ahead of the March 31, 2022 giving deadline, efforts are continuing to be made to grow membership well beyond this mark.
Although reaching this goal is a moment to celebrate, giving trends for the current drive year suggest that the Hokie Club should surpass the goal of 25,000 members by a substantial margin. However, all of Hokie Nation is still needed to complete this achievement. While someone is not required to do everything, we do ask all Hokies to participate. Any donor at any giving amount in the current drive year (Drive Year 2022) is counted towards the goal of 25,000 members.
