Help the Students for Cultivating Change students attend the national Cultivating Change Summit to meet the members of our nation’s other chapters and participate in professional development opportunities.
We are Students for Cultivating Change at Virginia tech, a student organization who welcomes all who wish to advance LGBTQ+ issues in agriculture, natural resources, and beyond.
This year, the Cultivating Change Foundation is hosting the 6th Cultivating Change Summit, the first since 2019, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The summit brings together agriculture LGBTQ+ employees, human resources and diversity and inclusion professionals, leaders, executives and organizational leaders, allies and others who are working toward an equitable industry environment for LGBTQ+ agriculturists everywhere.
We are so excited to send our amazing students to the summit this year; however, we need funding to support students who cannot afford it by themselves. Our goal is $6,000 which would fully fund 10 students to attend this fantastic professional development opportunity. We greatly appreciate any size gift that will help provide this experience to as many students as possible!
College of Agriculture and Life Sciences alumni, Steven Critchfield ’80, has generously provided a gift matching challenge of $3,000. Give today, double your impact, and support LGBTQ+ students.
