VIRGINIAforever was established in late 2006 as an independent 501(c)(4) non-profit organization after growing out of a special campaign launched by The Nature Conservancy. Since that time we have worked diligently to carry out our mission to further the common good and general welfare of the citizens of Virginia by bringing about civic improvement through increased public investment and the commitment of funds to protect and preserve natural resources, with an emphasis on land and water.
We've experienced a number of notable accomplishments since our transition – which includes working with our partners to secure $260 million in revenue bonds for the Water Quality Improvement Fund for point source clean up, nearly $10 million for the Purchase of Development Rights program, Virginia Land Conservation Foundation and the state’s purchase of Brumley Mountain in Southwest, Virginia –- but there is still much to be done.
Our annual Bridge Builder Roast has honored such distinguished public servants as Eva Teig Hardy, former United States Senator John Warner, and most recently Speaker William J. Howell. The 2011 Bridge Builder Roast featured Senator Dick Saslaw, Delegate David Albo, Chuck Howell and Secretary Doug Domenech as roasters.
