Virginia Community Foundation’s Mission and Vision

OUR MISSION: The Virginia Community Foundation is a catalyst for investment of charitable giving through grantmaking and leadership initiatives that strengthen and revitalize our community.

OUR VISION: We envision Virginia as a vibrant place where people feel welcome and share a strong sense of community pride. The revitalization of our city center showcases how entrepreneurship and locally owned businesses can thrive, and features active venues for art and cultural experiences. Investment is visible in both our business districts and neighborhoods through the restoration and beautification of vintage properties, and sustainable construction of new ones. Families are drawn to Virginia as a long-term place to settle and raise their children due to our safe attractive neighborhoods, parks and recreational opportunities, strong schools, and other amenities. Public, nonprofit, and private organizations work collaboratively across sectors to achieve these improvements that matter most to the people living and working in our community.
