A University of Virginia (UVA) School of Medicine department chair and orthopaedic surgeon, Bobby Chhabra, MD, also works with the university’s athletics department as a team physician, hand surgery consultant, and sports medicine faculty member. Dr. Bobby Chhabra’s work for the athletic department is subsidized through the Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF), which supports university sports through a number of initiatives that include the Young Alumni Program.
Financial support towards the VAF enables it to continue funding scholarships, summer school facilities, academic affairs, and athletics department operational needs. The Young Alumni Program presents recent UVA graduates the opportunity to financially support Virginia athletics and the VAF while receiving mutual dollar-for-dollar benefits. Program members receive credit for double the amount of their contribution to the VAF Annual Campaign, given in the form of priority points and VAF benefits. VAF benefits include tax deductions, auto decals, and invitations to celebration, social, and post-season events. Additionally, members can also trade priority points for priority seating at UVA athletic competitions.
UVA graduates eligible for the Young Alumni Program include undergraduates who received their degree in the last four years and graduates who earned their degree within the last two years. The program can match gifts up to $5,000.
