It is estimated that approximately 725,000 veterans call Virginia home, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. They’ve served in every conflict since World War II, represent all branches of the military, and come from all walks of life.
How We Serve
Government resources alone cannot fully meet the needs of Virginia veterans. That’s why your support is so important. Your contribution will lend a helping hand to veterans in need and honor all veterans for their service and sacrifice.
About the Foundation
The Virginia Veterans Services Foundation
is an independent state agency that supports veterans and their families through the Virginia Department of Veterans Services’ (DVS) programs and services set forth in “How We Serve.” The Foundation accepts donations to support critical programs and services for Virginia veterans and their families that are not covered by state or federal funds.
Charitable Tax Exempt Status
The Foundation is eligible to receive tax-deductible donations. Contributions are placed in the Veterans Services Fund and will not revert to the Commonwealth’s General Fund. Donations may be tax exempt under section 170 (c) (1) of the Internal Revenue Code and section 2.2-2719 of the Code of Virginia. The Foundation practices the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice.
Use of Donations
The Foundation regrets that it cannot provide relief funding directly to veterans and public services organizations. Individuals and organizations must apply through DVS. For information, see www.dvs.virginia.gov
