Reserve Fund

The Vail Religious Foundation has never done any fundraising to assist with costs of operations. Te Vail Interfaith Chapel would not survive a catastrophic economic event, loss of congregation(s), or another pandemic for longer than three years.  We need additional financial assistance to secure its place as part of the Town of Vail and the Vail Valley’s future.
