Support VFH

Why Support VFH?

Giving to the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities supports lifelong learning, public dialogue and civic engagement throughout Virginia and beyond.  The Humanities are essential to so many communities around the state and are demonstrated by VFH through public outreach programs like VA Indian and African American Programs, VA Festival of the Book, VA Folklife, digital programming like Encyclopedia Virginia, radio programming on public radio stations, documentary editing, as well as post-graduate fellows in residence.  In addition your gift will support a vibrant grant program that has been a hallmark of VFH’s efforts since its founding in 1974.  This variety of programming could not be possible without support from our generous patrons, sponsors and foundations.  Please consider a gift to the Annual Fund or a Program of your choice and help VFH continue to thrive!

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund helps underwrite the daily operations of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and support all facets of the organization. These are just a few examples of the many ways in which VFH is fostering lifelong learning, serving the Commonwealth of Virginia, and preserving its history. We hope that you will join our growing number of supporters with an Annual Fund gift today and help us reach our $200,000 goal!  Last year, your annual gifts provided necessary support to:

  • Bring authors, publishers, and panelists to the Festival of the Book in March
  • Safeguard the valuable and vanishing folk cultures, art, and traditions of Virginia through the Virginia Folklife Program
  • Broadcast educational programs to citizens of Virginia through With Good Reason, a weekly radio program aired on public radio stations throughout the nation

All gifts and pledges completed before June 30th count towards this year’s Annual Fund. Support all VFH programs with a gift to the Annual Fund today.
