Ways To Give

You can make the difference in the future of a young child by supporting the work of the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation. A child’s early experiences can impact the trajectory of his or her entire life. When a child is born with risks, such as low birth weight or to a mother who has not graduated from high school, we can buffer these risks by promoting positive interactions with caring parents and adults and ensuring access to high quality early care for every child.

Make a lasting difference by helping Virginia’s youngest children start kindergarten healthy and prepared. There are many ways that you can support our work, and your contribution to the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation will make a meaningful impact.


Cash Gifts
Your contribution directly impacts the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation’s ability to make a difference in the lives of our young children, to support working families, and to build a highly skilled workforce for the future. The Virginia Early Childhood Foundation invites you to consider a tax deductible contribution to foster school readiness throughout the Commonwealth.

Donations can be made securely online by clicking DONATE NOW! or by mailing in a check payable to VECF to: Virginia Early Childhood Foundation, 1703 N. Parham Road, Suite 110, Richmond, VA 23229.

Matching Gifts
Many companies match the charitable donations made by their employees – doubling and sometimes tripling the impact. Please contact your employer’s Human Resources Department to see if your gift to VECF qualifies for a matching contribution.

Honorary and Memorial Gifts
A gift to Virginia Early Childhood Foundation is a meaningful way to honor or remember a loved one or to celebrate a holiday, birthday, wedding, or other special recognition such as Mother’s or Father’s Day. Your gift will be acknowledged with a note sent to you or the honoree.

Stock Gifts
Virginia Early Childhood Foundation accepts gifts of appreciated stocks and other securities. In many cases, a donor will receive a charitable donation for the market value of the gift and avoid paying capital gains (consult your tax advisor.) Please contact VECF at (804) 358-8323 if you wish to make a donation of appreciated securities.
