Faculty and Staff Support

The Climb is an opportunity for the employees of Radford University to show up and demonstrate the collective power of giving. When employees give to their areas of passion, TOGETHER we make a positive impact on our students and demonstrate our #HighlanderPride!

Every gift to Radford University – no matter how large or small – is important and has the power to change lives. Our goal this year is to reach 25% by June 30, 2024. Every gift moves us forward. Join the Climb today!



You may direct your donation to the area of campus that matters the most to you, from athletics to the arts, from scholarships to student emergency funds. One practical place that faculty and staff can make a direct impact on our students is through increased scholarship support. Scholarships open the door to a college education for talented students who might otherwise be left thousands of dollars in debt. Scholarships serve as great tools to help students start, stay and succeed at Radford University.

For questions about specific funds that directly impact your area of interest, contact Carolyn Clayton at cjclayton@radford.edu.



As employees, you have the unique opportunity to make your gift via payroll deduction. Recurring payroll deduction allows you to spread your pledge over the course of a year, in smaller, more financially manageable amounts. A payroll deduction of $5 per paycheck results in an annual gift of $120! Visit OneCampus, and search “Payroll Deductions” to get started!

You also have the option to give online via credit card or mail a check to the Radford University Foundation, Inc. (Radford University Office of University Advancement, P.O. BOX 6893, Radford, VA 24142).
