Donate to VIDA
VIDA could not exist without generous supporters who believe in the power of civic engagement. After the death of Senator Vasconcellos, VIDA received an extraordinary pledge to perpetuate the vision of the Institute of Community and Civic Engagement. Community members Jim and Becky Morgan pledged a challenge grant of $198,000 over three years in honor of Senator Vasconcellos' long history of civic work. Your gift will help the program match their generous donation.
