Voices for Virginia’s Children is excited to announce that the Carol S. Fox MAKING KIDS COUNT Awards, our signature fundraiser, returns Thursday evening, October 6, 2022, at the Bon Secours Training Center.

Following a two-year absence, we are excited to again recognize individuals and organizations that help us meet our mission of championing policies that improve the lives of Virginia’s children.

Founded in 1994, Voices for Virginia’s Children is the Commonwealth’s only independent, multi-issue policy and advocacy organization focused on the best interests of children. The ceremony honors the legacy of Carol S. Fox one of several distinguished Virginians who gathered in 1994 to create the Action Alliance for Virginia’s Children and Youth, now known as Voices for Virginia’s Children. These awards are presented annually to people or organizations that exemplify Carol’s selfless and principled efforts to better the lives of Virginia’s children and to recognize her years of service on the Board. Her legacy continues to lead and inspire others to provide a ‘voice’ for children.

Please join our celebration that will include a host of child advocates, community leaders, friends and supporters of Voices, state agency heads, program directors, elected officials, and others who share the common goal of improving the lives of Virginia’s children.
