Influencer Awards

The VBH Foundation has provided more than $10 million in financial aid over the last decade to LifeSpire of Virginia residents who could no longer afford to pay for their care. Throughout the organization’s more than 70 year history, benevolence has been the heart of everything LifeSpire of Virginia does.

The Virginia Baptist Homes Foundation Influencer Award honors a champion at each community who causes a positive effect on the mission to enhance the lives of their friends and neighbors. Influencers embody the core values of LifeSpire of Virginia communities through their spirit, their engagement and their generosity.

Like a tree cannot grow without the influence of the sun, the VBH Foundation cannot grow without the support and generosity of its influencers and supporters. Together we are building vibrant places to live where faith, wellness and community flourish.
