GIVING TO THE VAIL VALLEY FOUNDATION
There are multiple ways to support the work of the Vail Valley Foundation. Whether it is through an unrestricted gift to the VVF General Fund, a restricted gift directed to a specific VVF program, a Planned Gift or a combination of the above, we have many ways you can give and are grateful for your support of our mission and community.
Online Silent Auction opens February 1!
Historically, the Black Diamond Ball is the most dynamic and entertaining evening of the season. The event is the signature fundraiser for the Vail Valley Foundation and festivities include a presentation of the Vail Valley Citizen of the Year Award, an award given annually since 1981 in recognition of outstanding commitment to our community.
While we will miss gathering in person this year, the ability to support the Vail Valley Foundation from the comfort of your own home, in your own style is an opportunity not to be missed. We hope you will join us for the 2021 Virtual Black Diamond Ball.
VVF GENERAL FUND
By making a gift to the VVF General Fund you are supporting the work of our entire organization. The General Fund is what allows our organization to operate and advance our mission in this community. We could not sustain our organization without this kind of unrestricted support.

Make an impact with a future gift. Generosity comes in many forms, and it’s often the best way for you to support important causes that matter the most in your life. When you make a planned gift to the Vail Valley Foundation, you leave a lasting legacy. Designate your gifts to one or more areas of our mission.
Vail Valley Foundation Community Fund
In addition to arts, athletics and education, a critical role of the VVF, in good times or bad, has been and always will be, community. COVID-19 has impacted everyone, but for many in our community, the impact of coronavirus has been catastrophic. We must help and help now. Therefore, on April 22, the Vail Valley Foundation launched the Vail Valley Foundation Community Fund, supporting four areas of critical need in Eagle County due to COVID-19: Food Insecurity; Mental & Behavioral Health; Shelter, Clothing & Household Assistance; and Youth Education & Programming in Eagle County.
If a donor is giving to VVF through an entity in which you have already received a tax-deduction, such as a Private Foundation, DAF, Charitable Trust and/or if a portion of your gift is being made through a Matching Gifts Program, there may be restrictions specific to receiving benefits. Please contact your tax-adviser if you have questions regarding your specific situation. The Vail Valley Foundation cannot knowingly facilitate a donor receiving an improper tax deduction or other benefit nor can we knowingly accept a gift that would result in impermissible private inurement or private benefit, an “excess benefit transaction” (as defined in section 4958 of the Internal Revenue Code), or self-dealing (as defined in section 4941 of the Internal Revenue Code).
