The 10th annual Madison Trust is March 10, 2023. The enrollment period has closed, but you may contact our office at 540-568-3196.

If you prefer to speak with someone on Zoom, let’s talk at a time that’s most convenient for you. 

How You Will Make an Impact
  • Immerse yourself in the intellectual core of JMU’s innovation, research, and discovery culture. 
  • Take an important role in life- and world-changing initiatives.
  • Collaborate face-to-face with other top thinkers and doers.

Find out more about what philanthropic investors like you and our faculty, staff, and students have accomplished together: Read our stories “In the News,” review the 2022 impact report and see our latest projects update.

You’ll be expected to:

  • Be available to hear pitches on campus or online. Our next Madison Trust funding event is planned for March 10, 2023.
  • Evaluate and assess promising proposals for faculty inventions, programs, research, and collaborations that can make a difference far beyond the boundaries of our campus
  • Choose which of our JMU faculty pitches to support with your philanthropic investment. On average, members of the panel each commit $5,000 (tax-deductible gift). Graduates of the last decade usually participate with a philanthropic investment of $500.
