proud to serve sevacf & hampton roads
Like all community foundations, we are overseen by a volunteer board of leading citizens and run by professionals who know our community’s needs. We go beyond simply making grants that advance charitable activities; we also identify current and emerging issues, stimulate resources to address those needs, and help Southeast Virginia prepare for the future.
