What is the Society of the Golden Sword?

The Society of the Golden Sword is The Forge Fund’s recognition program that honors those individuals making an annual contribution of $1,000 or more to VFMA&C.

What are matching gifts?

Many corporations match the gifts their employees give to non-profit and charitable organizations. These matching programs have been made part of many corporate giving initiatives both to extend the reach of corporate giving and to encourage employees to be actively involved in supporting their communities. Your company’s personnel or human resources office can provide information on how to process a matching gift.

Can I restrict my gift to an area of interest?

VFMA&C prefers unrestricted gifts that can be used in areas of the greatest need, however you may prefer to direct where your gift is used.
