VCHA Issues RFP for the Establishment of a Charitable Foundation

HENRICO, VA – The Virginia Community Healthcare Association (VCHA) has issued a request for proposal to partner with an organization to establish a philanthropic arm of VCHA by forming a charitable foundation to aid in our mission for the Commonwealth of Virginia to have the healthiest population in America.

VCHA envisions that the development and establishment of this foundation will proceed in three phases, each with measurable goals and objectives.

  • Phase 1 will consist of establishing the foundation’s operational infrastructure, including assisting with drafting and executing all necessary documentation and forms with the relevant government agencies.
  • Phase 2 will require the development of a fundraising strategy to be used for the first three years. The strategy will include philanthropy goals and objectives to achieve the goals. Additionally, Phase 2 will entail assembling a board of directors.
  • Phase 3 will consist of assisting VCHA’s CEO to hire and orient the foundation’s Executive Director and implement a fundraising strategy.

To reach these goals, VCHA is now accepting bids in response to this Request for Proposal. The deadline for submitting bids is December 1, 2022. For questions, please contact Kyle Elliott, VCHA’s General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer at
