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 19 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.
