Perpetual Support

Donors wanting to provide perpetual support for the VBH communities have given to one of our endowment funds. Gifts are invested and a portion of the endowment’s earnings is made available for use annually according to a percentage established by the Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees. The Foundation gratefully receives gifts of any size towards established endowment funds. New named endowment funds can be established for a minimum gift of $100,000.
