Faye Crawford Cooper Legacy Fund
Faye Crawford Cooper was appointed Executive Director Emerita by the VCC Board of Directors in July 2014 for her exemplary quarter-century of service to VCC as a founding member and as the 2nd and 6th Executive Director. At about the same time as her election, the VCC Board of Directors established this fund in her honor to assist VCC with unrestricted funding for its staffing and program needs. Please contact VCC at [email protected] or 540.886.3541.
VCC Building Fund
VCC purchased its historic 1877 two-story building in downtown Staunton in 2003. To retire its mortgage and to provide much-needed repairs (e.g., installing a new furnace, painting inside and outside, and sanding and repolishing the wood floors), VCC established this fund in 2014 to address the ongoing needs of its official headquarters. VCC stewardship begins in our own home! Please contact VCC at [email protected] or 540.886.3541.
