Where to Give

By supporting key areas of Batten, your gift can have a lasting and transformational effect.

The future of the Batten School’s evolution is clear: cementing leadership and team-building best practices into our curriculum and policy outreach, establishing Garrett Hall as a national locus of evidence-based policy research, and teaching advanced policy analysis skills to UVA’s extraordinary students. We know the complex issues of our time demand innovative, collaborative, cross-sector relationships within our walls and beyond.
