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 special card 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.
