Mission and Focus
The mission of the Virginia Environmental Endowment is to improve the quality of the environment by using its capital, expertise and resources to encourage all sectors to work together to prevent pollution, conserve natural resources, and promote environmental literacy.
Although accorded a national scope by its charter, the Endowment currently limits awards to eligible nonprofit organizations for programs conducted in the state of Virginia and in the Kanawha and Ohio River Valleys of Kentucky and West Virginia.
Additional information about the Virginia Environmental Endowment appeared as a cover story in the December 2014 edition of Appalachian Woodlands.
For information on the establishment of the Fund for the Virginia Environmental Endowment which enables individuals who wish to support the Endowment’s environmental grant-making to make tax deductible contributions to VEE by credit card, wire, or check, see Latest news and updates below.
