While Lead Virginia participants pay tuition to take part in the class, that tuition only accounts for half of the funding needed to sustain the program. Lead Virginia exists thanks, in large part, to the generosity of its donors. The new Lead Virginia Society is a way for the program to formally recognize those donors and their investment in our current and future leaders.
With a one-time gift of $5,000 or more, as well as a $1,500 commitment for each of the next two years, donors can become Founding Members of the Lead Virginia Society. Founding Members will play a pivotal role in establishing the Lead Virginia Society — which will sustain and enhance the program. These generous donors will be recognized for their investment toward advancing the mission of Lead Virginia for years to come. Ninety percent of each Founding Member’s gift will directly support the Lead Virginia program — including sessions, operations and recruitment. The other ten percent will support the Lead Virginia Endowment Fund to ensure long-term economic sustainability.
