Responsibilities of the Board include strategic planning, advocacy and fundraising. Funds raised by the Foundation provide much-needed support for scholarships, faculty development and academic program resources.

What We Do

The VHCC Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, charitable corporation that secures voluntary support and manages, invests and expends collected funds for the sole benefit of Virginia Highlands Community College.   We invest and distribute scholarship funds, purchase needed equipment and furnishings and provide financial support for academic and community enrichment programs.  We hold special fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for specific needs of the college.

Ways of Giving

Whether you are an individual, a corporation, a Foundation, or a VHCC employee, the VHCC Foundation can help you help our students and faculty through a generous donation while accruing benefits yourself.
