Congratulations to our donors and supporters. Thank you for your sponsorship and commitment.

Congratulations to Virginia Military Institute; you will have a more friendly legislature to work with.

Finally, congratulations to our team and our families of The Spirit of VMI PAC, whose dedication to the cause and relentless diligence has been awe-inspiring.

Now, let’s get to work.

VMI IS GOOD.

WHO WE ARE

We are alumni, parents and friends of VMI. We are an independent legal entity and registered political action committee (PAC). We are separate and distinct from the institute and its alumni agencies.

WHAT WE DO

PRESERVE

Since 1839, VMI has been a preeminent leadership institution that has served the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. The Spirit of VMI wants to ensure this continues for many generations to come.

PROTECT

Many key politicians are aggressively interested in VMI in a way that not only threatens its status as a top-ranked college in the nation, but even its survivability. We work to improve the political landscape in favor of VMI.

DEFEND

Some political adversaries are calling for the defunding of VMI.  We will affect change in the state’s legislature when it benefits VMI. We will continue to prove that VMI IS GOOD.

Many key politicians are aggressively interested in VMI in a way that not only threatens its status as a top-ranked college in the nation, but even its survivability.

HOW IT WORKS

By supporting legislators, state of Virginia government officials, and selected candidates for government office, we establish a federation of elected officials who know, understand and value VMI.

We find and support legislators, state of Virginia government officials, and selected candidates for government office, that support VMI through these 5 essential principles:

1. VMI Honor Code

2. Educating young women and men

3. Regimental system (VMI’s leadership system)

4. Class system (the foundational system building camaraderie and lifelong friendships among VMI academic years/classes)

5. VMI Ratline (the crucible for all freshmen)
