The Gifford Foundation was established in 1997 through the generosity of Helen G. Gifford (of blessed memory). The Foundation supports community programs and organizations which are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
In memory of Helen G. Gifford, the Gifford Foundation continues to support the organizations and activities that were important to her and located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, including local Jewish agencies and organizations with primary focus in the areas of cultural and performing arts and arts education.
