Create a Legacy
In the past ten years, more than $200,000 has been awarded to over 200 students and professionals - VRPS members, nonmembers, and their staff - to attend workshops, conferences and in-service trainings.
The source of income for the Foundation includes individual memberships, as well as generous donations from the VRPS Service Areas and Resource Groups. The Foundation Board of Directors has noted that of the more than 200 scholarship recipients, only forty (or 20%) have invested in becoming members of the Foundation. We can and must do better than this in supporting an organization whose mission is to create educational opportunities for students and professionals in the leisure services industry.
We ask you to consider a personal investment in an annual membership. You can choose from any level and join others in supporting the efforts of the Foundation to continue improving our programs in Commonwealth.
- Bronze $15
- Silver $25
- Gold $50
- Century $100
- Platinum $250
As we develop a culture of generosity, our desire is to create a legacy that will support the Foundation for future generations of students and professionals, who in turn will keep VRPS in the forefront of the park and recreation movement.
