On February 1, 1977, Virginia Environmental Endowment (VEE) became the first-ever grant-making foundation in the nation solely dedicated to the environment. VEE was started with $8 million dollars from a court settlement with Allied Chemical Corporation for polluting the James River with the insecticide Kepone. By leveraging its dollars, VEE has achieved more than $80 million in environmental improvements throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
In commemoration of its 40th anniversary, the VEE’s history and achievements are highlighted in a display that showcases its efforts to shape Virginia’s water, land, environmental education and other issues through supporting partnerships with hundreds of organizations. The VEE display discusses the past, present, and future of our relationship with the environment.
