What You Should Know

The Virginia Community Foundation (VCF) is a permanent endowment committed to the improvement of the quality of life in Virginia. Funds invested in the endowment generate investment returns that are used to fund community projects. In addition to the endowment, the VCF board of directors and staff oversee designated funds and special projects that enrich the lives of those who live in and visit Virginia.

In 2021, the Foundation celebrated its 31st anniversary. The Foundation has awarded over $1 million in grants, supported the installation of 9 murals, and moved into a permanent home at 303 Chestnut Street. The latter is thanks to a generous contribution from Dr. Brenner, a former resident and physician that worked in Virginia for many years.
