Unrestricted donations to the Annual Fund support VFH’s greatest need and allow us the flexibility to respond quickly to new opportunities, as well as to meet unexpected budget challenges. Your Annual Fund gift will be put directly to work in support of all of VFH’s programs and initiatives.
To make the most of your support, consider making a recurring gift on a schedule you choose. You can feel good knowing that your steady support makes it possible for VFH to do good work each and every day!
Support a Specific Program
Do you have a favorite VFH program? If so, designating your gift to a specific program is an opportunity to support the work that means the most to you. We encourage you to explore our programs and how they impact our Commonwealth every day.
Effective July 1, 2015, 5% of all restricted program gifts will support general VFH operations.
Make a Gift in Honor or Memory of Someone Special
Whenever you find yourself searching for the perfect gift, consider making a contribution to VFH in honor of someone you know who believes in the VFH mission or is a fan of one of our programs. Likewise, making a gift in memory of a loved one is a thoughtful way to mark that person’s legacy and celebrate their life.
If your company is seeking a way to send a positive message about your priorities and reach a large and growing audience of VFH supporters, numerous high-visibility VFH programs, events, and initiatives are available for sponsorships. Sponsorship packages are customized for each company and designed to create the maximum exposure and benefits for the sponsor. Benefits may include tickets to VFH events, recognition in multiple media platforms, and acknowledgment in widely-circulated VFH publications, both printed and online.
Make the Most of Your Investment with a Matching Gift
Many employers offer matching gift programs, doubling or even tripling the impact of your gift. See if your company participates in this sort of program!
Invest in VFH with a Planned Gift
Supporting VFH through a planned giving vehicle often results in an opportunity for donors to make a more impactful gift to VFH, while at the same time receiving personal financial benefits such as tax savings, asset management, and a supplemental source of income.
Support the VFH Endowment
Endowment income is vital to the health and future of VFH’s mission. VFH invests endowment gifts to generate a steady stream of income, in perpetuity, for fellowships, public programs and events, and digital initiatives. Donors may also create unrestricted endowments, which produce resources that can be used where the greatest need exists.
