Why do Hokies give?
Stories of giving

The Donation of the Lucy and Olivio Ferrari Archive

“It’s been one of the great pleasures of my life to have helped enable generations of CAUS students to travel and experience Europe as part of their education. With the donation of the Ferrari Archive, we hope to continue to inspire students to explore and dream big. I cannot think of a worthier investment than the students of CAUS.”
