The Vail Valley Charitable Fund (VVCF) was created in 1996 to provide assistance to individuals who live and work in the Vail Valley who are experiencing a financial hardship due to a medical crisis or long-term illness. The VVCF has grown significantly over the past 20 years, having raised and distributed $7 million to approximately 1,400 families in our community. The majority of our donations come from individuals and businesses right here in our Valley. With your help, we provide almost 70 individuals and families each year with assistance to help them make ends meet while undergoing treatment or recovery from a range of medical conditions.

Help the Vail Valley Charitable Fund help Joshua Casillas get a wheelchair conversion van!
Now open to bid on for one week only: $7,500 credit towards a new roof or roofing repairs! End November 29th.
Joshua is a 14-year-old attending Gypsum Creek Middle School. Joshua now weighs 140lbs and is 5'2" tall. It is no longer possible for his family to pick him up to get him in and out of a standard vehicle. When Joshua was eight months old, he contracted meningitis which resulted in many hospital stays. Since then he has been diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy, intractable seizure disorder and other mental and motor delays.
