Who We Are

WE PROVIDE financial assistance to those suffering from a medical crisis or long-term illness.

WE SUPPORT locals in the Vail Valley, distributing $8 million to over 1,500 families since 1996.

WE BELIEVE in helping locals overcome financial burdens from serious medical setbacks.

WE ARE the Vail Valley Charitable Fund.


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 23 years, having raised and distributed $8 million to over 1,500 families in our community. The majority of our donations come from individuals and businesses right here in our Valley. With your help, we provide on average 50 individuals and families each year with assistance to help them make ends meet while undergoing treatment or recovery from a range of medical conditions.

“It has been 10 months since Emmy's last treatment session at Children's Hospital, and she has just received another set of clear scans! Our little ladybug's hair is growing like crazy, her energy levels are high and every day that passes since treatment is absolutely the best day. All of our spirits are through the roof getting to watch her be a regular little girl who just turned 3 years old! In other news, we are in the process of launching our very own non-profit that will be known as Emmy's Friends. Living deep in the world of treatment the last few years and having been on the receiving end of so much help and support, we look at it as our duty to give back, as soon as possible. Emmy's Friends is being designed to help young patients and their families who are facing life-threatening illnesses, receive better access to fresh and wholesome organic foods, nutritional guidance and bountiful resources for healthy living; all of the essential parts of both a thriving existence and battling sickness that are often grossly overlooked. Bridging the gap towards a healthier everyone through the best nutrition possible. We look forward to sharing more about our initiative soon. Thank you again for all of your support. We wouldn't be here today if not the love and support of our amazing community.                  Much Love - The Welle Family”
