Virginia Counselor Association Foundation has been supporting Counselors in the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than 20 years.  Our Board of Directors includes a hard working, energetic, and seasoned veterans of the counseling profession, who are very committed to the Foundation and to enhancing the counseling professions. However, the practicing professional counselor makes the difference everyday, to help build and support the counseling profession of the future. That is why the VCA Foundation affirms that, "Counselors are Foundation, Everyday!"

Giving Back and Paying Forward

The VCA Foundation is committed to VCA and its Chapters and Divisions, and to all Professional Counselors in Virginia.   Your generous donations will allow us to undertake the ambitious goals we set for each year, as we try to revitalize a dynamic organization, that will be more responsive and inclusive in acknowledging the value of the important work  of the professional counselor.  We also invite our friends in the community who have benefited from the good work of their local counselors to contribute to our cause of supporting counselors.
