VA Tech establishes Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund

While much of the country was stunned by the tragedy at Virginia Tech on Monday, the development office moved quickly to provide an opportunity for grieving donors.

The university created the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, which will raise money to aid with grief counseling, memorial costs, and communication expenses for the families of the victims.

Any memorial gifts, payable to the “Virginia Tech Foundation,” designated specifically for the “Virginia Tech Family Fund,” should be mailed to University Development, 902 Prices Fork Road (0336), Blacksburg, VA 24061.

I guess it proves once again that the web is revolutionary in its ability to allow fundraisers to act quickly in times of tragedy. I'm sure some people may have a problem with this... but this is a completely appropriate (and positive) response.
