VPF seeks to provide an effective method for identifying emerging under-funded, under-recognized projects or programs that embody an entrepreneurial spirit, and promise high impact and effectiveness for complex, persistent social problems. VPF is especially interested in supporting startups and fledgling organizations that have not yet received significant support from major funders.
In order to focus on issues in a meaningful way, VPF invests in one of six designated areas: arts, education, environment, health, poverty and youth.
