Annual Report
Pay it forward
by investing in your favorite VFH program!
This summer VFH had the great fortune to
receive a $1 million commitment from Barbara
Fried, the chair of its Board of Directors, to endow
and sustain Encyclopedia Virginia (EV). Fried has
been passionate about EV from its birth in 2005
and its launch three years later, seeing the online
publication as an important, authoritative history
resource for students, teachers, and learners of all
ages. “It’s essential for our citizens to have access to
reliable information about Virginia,” she told us.
Programs such as EV make a real difference
in Virginia, and generous gifts such as Fried’s are
essential for making them possible. In recent years
we have focused on the importance of making
unrestricted gifts to the VFH Annual Fund, which
has been—and remains—our greatest need. But
at the same time, VFH has twelve programs in
addition to EV, each providing critical humanities
outreach across the Commonwealth and beyond.
They all need support.
We want to take this opportunity to encourage
our supporters, whether loyal members of our
Cardinal Society or first-time donors, to find a
VFH program that makes a difference in your life
or those around you. Consider your passions and
interests. Whether it’s preserving folk traditions
through the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship
Program, digitizing the papers of Patrick Henry
through Documents Compass, facilitating the
appearance of authors in schools during the annual
Virginia Festival of the Book, or producing national
broadcast radio shows such as BackStory with the
American History Guys and With Good Reason—
chances are, VFH has a program that fits.
One matter of particular urgency these days is
preserving our unique programming. To meet this
need, we are creating a project called Discovery
Virginia, a searchable online database that will
preserve all of VFH’s digital programming and make
it available to the public. There you’ll find videos of
book festival events, audio recordings of folk artists,
past episodes of radio shows, and many other
irreplaceable recordings and videos. Consider it just
one more way that VFH provides Virginians of all
ages with new opportunities to engage with their
state’s history and culture.
You have dedicated a portion of your resources
to VFH over the years and we are truly grateful
for your support. With your investment, VFH has
been able to produce more than 40,000 humanities
programs and contribute to more than 3,000 grant
projects across the Commonwealth and beyond.
These are extraordinary numbers when you
consider the intellectual depth associated with each
of these projects.
We hope that Barbara Fried will serve as an
inspiration to others who have connected with
VFH and want to get involved with one or more
of its many programs. Thank you for your help in
sustaining its strong future!

This year we recognize in-kind contributions from board
members and donors who have hosted events, contributed their
artwork to the Raucous Auction, provided goods and services for
programs, and promoted VFH programming. These contributions
allow VFH to expand its reach throughout the Commonwealth
by promoting our work, underwriting expenses, and helping to
secure additional funding. VFH is grateful for the interest of these
donors and their support of VFH.
