The Virginia Foundation for Community College Education


The Virginia Foundation for Community College Education bridges the gap between the dream of higher education and the real-world challenges facing many Virginians. Building the Future of Virginia is the Foundation’s action plan to hasten economic and social mobility for under-employed and lower-income residents through education.

Our mission is to build student success and Virginia’s future by supporting its community colleges through:

Building the workforce in critical industries across the state

Developing new programs and pathways to high-demand careers

Increasing the number of first-generation college graduates

Supporting veterans in their transition from service to career

Bridging gaps for at-risk students from high school to college to career

What we’re doing to address educational disparities.

Together with local communities, businesses, governments, and committed donors, the VFCCE is engaged in  transformative programs to reimagine how our community colleges will enable us to efficiently and effectively Build the Future of Virginia.
