VHCF Values

The Virginia Health Care Foundation’s culture is reflected in the following:

Exemplary Stewardship

We are laser-focused, creative and efficient in getting the most value out of limited resources, and leveraging what we have for the greatest benefit and return. We invest for the long term, maximizing the sustainability of the organizations we fund. We constantly evaluate the impact of our actions, and hold ourselves and our grantees accountable for demonstrating results to our donors and the citizens of Virginia.

Drive for Excellence

We are energetic and enthusiastic in the pursuit of our mission, and are tenacious in our commitment to achieve extraordinary results. We are action-oriented and effective. We strive to use best practices in everything we do.

Catalyst for Change

We never rest on our laurels. We are progressive and entrepreneurial in our thinking, always seeking new and innovative ways to deliver our services, add value to our constituencies and move our mission forward.


We hold ourselves to the highest standards of professionalism and accountability. We do all things for the benefit of our mission.  Our decisions are data driven. We are honest in our words, actions and results. We do what we say we are going to do.
