Mission and History

The VCU Foundation (formerly the VCU Fund) was originally founded in 1917 as the Citizen’s Foundation of the School of Social Work and Public Health. In May 1989, the VCU Fund’s Articles of Incorporation were amended and restated to change the name to the VCU Foundation.

The Foundation exists solely to assist, support and foster Virginia Commonwealth University in all proper ways that may from time to time be approved by the trustees of the Foundation with the guidance of the university. The Foundation solicits, manages and distributes current and endowment gifts for all schools, departments and programs throughout the university with major emphasis on programs for the Monroe Park Campus. The Foundation also has been used to acquire certain properties on behalf of the university.

The Foundation is governed by an independent Board of Trustees. The university rector and president serve as ex-officio trustees of the Foundation. The university’s development officer and financial officer serve as secretary and treasurer, respectively, to the Foundation.
