Rick Herrema Foundation

Who we support

The Rick Herrema Foundation’s (RHF) mission is strengthening military families and building communities through fun, quality activities. RHF’s first location, “Rick’s Place,” is located just minutes from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, home of the Airborne and Special Operations. Rick’s Place is open daily and free for military families, offering fishing, horseback riding, music and art, obstacle courses, nature trails, summer camps, gardening, and outdoor recreation. The atmosphere of relaxation and rejuvenation at Rick’s Place honors the ongoing sacrifice made by our military families, and provides them a peaceful, stigma-free place to connect before, during, and after deployments.

Virginians For Veterans (V4V) is a new charity formed by a group of Richmond business leaders to raise funds for specific local and regional veteran support groups.  Over the past 6 years we have raised over $750,000 to aid our vets.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families.

Virgians for Veterans has been classified under IRS section 501(c)(3) as a public charity. V4V cannot provide advice on the potential deductability of your gift. Please consult your tax advisor.
