About Us


VTV Family Outreach Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by the families and survivors impacted by the April 16, 2007 tragedy at Virginia Tech. Determined to prevent a similar tragedy, VTV’s mission is to advocate for common sense action such as strengthening the nation’s background check system, which is why we have launched Campaign 32.
While we celebrate many achievements since that tragic day, we remember those lost and strive to do more in their honor.

We’ve assembled a passionate board of directors and a robust national advisory council, who are supported by our experienced staff in order to bring people together to create a safer society. One of our flagship programs, the 32 National Campus Safety Initiative, has their own Advisory Council that further strengthens and enriches our Foundation.
