Welcome to
Valley Presbyterian Foundation

Legacy society

The Legacy Society helps provide a long-term foundation for VPC. Members of the Legacy Society desire to continue God's work past their lifetimes to grow as a Church and to spread God's love to our congregational and community members for years to come. There are no start-up or annual fees. Simply name the Foundation in your estate plan or will.

A will is the cornerstone of a well-organized estate plan, but it can also proclaim your Christian faith, demonstrating your faithful stewardship to future generations. The Valley Legacy Society is composed of members who have designated the Foundation in their wills or trusts.

Annual Foundation Dinner & Fund the Need

The Foundation Dinner is an annual fundraiser designed to support a specific church or missional need. The event has raised and distributed over $323,000 towards mission and campus improvement costs that directly support our congregation and community programs like Family Promise of Greater Phoenix and Boy Scout Troop 441. 

Fund the Need

Fund the Need (FTN) became a popular feature of the Annual Legacy Dinner in 2015. It gave dinner guests the opportunity to directly support a capital need of the church and observe first hand the results of their gifts within a year. Overall, FTN has raised over $323,000 as of 2020 to give to VPC for improvements and upgrades. Highlights are:

2020 - Raised $36,000 to upgrade the Chapel audio visual system and install televisions in many of the classrooms.

2019 - Raised $50,000 to cover the cost of A/C units throughout VPC Campus, providing cool rooms to worship and praise. 

2018 - Raised and donated $57,000 to Family Promise of Greater Phoenix. 

2017 - Raised $40,000 for the removal and replacement of major kitchen appliances in Landes Center.

2016 - Raised $70,000 for the new landscape design and installation on the eastside of the Chapel,
