Send a Check

If you’d like to send a check, please mail it to the following address:

Virginia Humanities
145 Ednam Drive
Charlottesville, VA 22903-4629

Please make your check payable to Virginia Humanities. If you’d like to designate your support for a specific program or initiative, please include a notation in the “For” line. If you’re making a payment towards an existing pledge, a notation to that effect helps us properly allocate your gift.

Make a Gift of Securities

Donors who give stock to Virginia Humanities avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities. In this sort of transaction, stock is best transferred to Virginia Humanities, rather than being sold by the donor.

Contact: Courtney R. Orensky or Jennifer Ebbling-Gulley

After contacting Davenport, please contact Virginia Humanities regarding your gift so that we are best able to properly allocate and acknowledge your support. We very much appreciate the following details: name of donor, type of security, number of shares, and whether you want the gift to support our unrestricted Virginia Humanities Fund or a specific restricted program. We will monitor our account and let you know when we have received the transfer.
