Why Give?

The Virginia Foundation serves as a means for people to contribute financially to Virginia’s well-being. With the lessening of state and federal support to local units of government, communities must begin looking for new ways to generate resource to continually improve our communities.

The executive board hopes to build on current enthusiasm to inspire community pride and community action as well as community participation. Virginia community leaders and groups need to understand the potential then develop a shared vision that instills hope and creates a “we can do” spirit in the community. The board hopes to encourage philanthropy among Virginia residents- past, present, and future. Through the Virginia Foundation, people can give something back to a community that has provided them with roots, memories and a sense of belonging. By giving to the Foundation you are giving towards making a community that people are proud to live in, raise their families, and call “home”.
