On April 16, 2007, we lost 32 beautiful souls. Families of the victims and survivors bonded together to create the VTV Family Outreach Foundation.
The VTV Family Outreach Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by families and survivors directly impacted by the April 16, 2007 tragedy at Virginia Tech. Determined to prevent a similar tragedy, the Foundation advocates for campus safety and security by focusing on issues of mental health, bullying, privacy laws and information sharing, and supporting programs to create positive change in behavior.
The Foundation’s mission is to assist victims of campus crime and their families. Educating communities through service in athletics and the arts and facilitating dialogue between individuals, organizations, government agencies and legislatures, the Foundation intends to create a safer academic environment and a caring culture on campuses.
