Changing Lives

Philanthropy changes lives in two ways. A charitable person offers a hand to someone in need. This experience helps the recipient while bringing joy and meaning to the giver. As southeastern Virginia's largest grant and scholarship provider, we help ignite all kinds of positive and lasting connections as a funder, convenor and collaborator.
