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 the 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 stock 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.

Planned Gifts

With planned giving, you may be able to enjoy a variety of tax benefits while also supporting VECF. Please consult your financial advisor and then contact VECF at (804) 358-8323 to discuss your options.
