The Virginia Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports innovation and continued improvement in the community of Virginia, Minnesota, in the heart of Minnesota’s Iron Range.
Earnings from the Foundation’s charitable endowment (assets: $4.8 million) are used in grant-making to fund projects that are vital to the progress and growth of the community of Virginia. With gratitude to generous community-minded citizens and businesses who make contributions, the Foundation has awarded over $862,000 in grants throughout the community to date.
Recently, the Virginia Foundation received a gift of land from Dr. David Brenner (a past physician in Virginia) and upon the sale of the land a permanent home was for the Foundation was purchased. For over 25 years the Virginia Foundation resided at 519 Chestnut Street (a donated space by Kurt & Carol Sundquist) and Northern State Bank. When the donated land sold the Virginia Foundation moved to its “new” and permanent home at 303 Chestnut Street-formerly Silver Lake Floral. Please stop in and see our new home!
