Virginia Press Foundation receives exempt status from IRS

The Virginia Press Foundation, formed in October 2013, was notified by the Internal Revenue Service earlier this month as a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organization.

The Foundation, which was the brainchild of former Virginia Press Association President Keith Stickley, is now qualified to receive “tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.”

Lifetime Achievement Award

From time to time, the Virginia Press Association recognizes exceptional individual contributions to the newspaper industry by presenting an individual with the VPA Lifetime Achievement Award.
