The VCC Annual Fund Committee and program was established in 2004. Volunteers from several denominations have been working in an organized way to build individual and business support to supplement the donations from the member judicatories.
Every gift to the Virginia Council of Churches represents an expression of faith and support of ecumenism in the Commonwealth. However, to encourage generous participation in the Annual Fund, recognition societies have been created as follow:
Chalice Society — $5,000 and Up
John 17 Society — $1,000
Oikoumene Society — $500
Agape Society — $250
Petras Society — $100
