Thank you for deciding to support our community.

You can contribute online to any of our charitable funds safely and securely (below). Your gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law and you will receive an acknowledgment electronically for your tax records.

The fund that receives a credit card gift will incur the transaction fee assessed by the credit card processing company; this fee does not reduce the deductibility of the contribution.

Please indicate to which fund you would like your donation attributed. Checks that do not specify a fund will be attributed to VCF's General Fund for unrestricted use.
