Center for Peace Studies And Violence Prevention: How to Donate

The Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention is largely funded by grants and donations.

The CPSVP welcomes donations and endowments. The Center’s mission is centered around the following priorities, which are largely funded by gifts from our supporters:

  1. Establish Peacebuilding Outreach Efforts.
  2. Establish an Endowed Speaker series, bringing high-profile scholars to Virginia Tech for special lectures.
  3. Establish a Professional Development and Research Fund for CPSVP-affiliated faculty.

Prospective endowment donors are invited to get in touch with our Director, Jim Hawdon. You may contact the CPSVP at 540-231-2345 or

We look forward to answering any questions you may have about our goals as an organization and how donations will be put to work.

If you’d like to make a gift to the center now, please visit the Virginia Tech Giving web page, found here:, then simply write in the designation area that you are donating to the Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention.
