About VHCF

The Virginia Health Care Foundation makes a difference in the lives of countless Virginians every day.

A public/private partnership, VHCF helps uninsured Virginians and those who live in underserved communities obtain medical, dental and mental health care. VHCF support helps free clinics, community health centers and a variety of other nonprofit organizations to expand both the types of care offered and the number of patients cared for each year.

In addition to grants, VHCF programs help make free and discounted prescription medicines available to uninsured Virginians with chronic illnesses. And VHCF application assistance helps uninsured Virginians obtain medical, mental health and dental coverage.

Since 1992, VHCF’s partnerships and programs have:

  • Made more than 3.9 million patient visits possible;
  • Generated more than $9 billion in free medications for nearly 366,000 individuals;
  • Enrolled more than 146,000 Virginians in state-sponsored health insurance; and
  • Provided more than $16 million in grants to help establish or expand 55 of the Commonwealth’s dental safety net practices.
