Tax Receipts

Tax receipts for 2015 have been mailed out. If you have not received yours, please contact us.

Generally, the Radford University Foundation issues tax receipts in late January of each year for the previous calendar year. We attempt to issue tax receipts to all donors, and not just donors who are required to have a receipt under IRS regulations. If you do not receive a tax receipt or would like one issued at the time of your donation, please contact us at Foundation@radford.edu.


The Radford University Foundation is proud to have provided the funding for the Radford University SMIPO Program. This student initiative is overseen by Radford University faculty, including Dr. Steven Beach, Dr. Clarence Rose and Dr. Abhay Kaushik.

Radford University Foundation-Student Intern Program

Head shot of Kelci Simonsen

For nearly 5 years, the Radford University Foundation has had an ongoing student intern program.  The Student Interns have all been Accounting majors at Radford University.  In addition to gaining some practical work experience, the interns get paid minimum wage.

Our current student intern is Kelci Simonsen. Kelci is a senior at RU and plans to graduate in May.  Besides working at the Foundation, Kelci has been involved in SMIPO (Student Managed Investment Portfolio Organization) and she is a Vice President in The Delti Sigma Phi International Business Fraternity.

Kelci has a very good Grade Point Average and has made the Dean’s list several times.  The Radford University Foundation would like to thank Kelci for her hard work, and wish her good luck upon graduation.

Kelci’s predecessor as Intern was Brandon Walton.  Brandon graduated in December of 2014, and moved to Richmond to start his career.

The Foundation is now accepting applications for the position of student intern which will be available in the summer/fall of 2016. Interested candidates may fill out an application and submit it.  For more information please contact Foundation@radford.edu.
