we are very close to launching the Virginia Archaeology Charitable Trust (VACT), and we need your help to make this a realilty. The VACT Board received funding from COVA, ASV, and individuals for both the IRS application for non-profit status and lifetime support for the fundraising software that allows on-line donations. At this writing, the IRS application has been mailed and we are hoping to go live with VACT by March 2019. VACT still needs an additional $500 to assist with website expenses, advertisements (including a traveling poster that will go to meetings), and incidential expenses. Please consider making a donation to VACT at our next membership meeting on February 8th in Williamsburg or as an add-on to your memerbership dues through Paypal (http://cova-inc.org/about/membership.html).
VACT is a crowd-funding website that will serve as a hub for supporting archaeological projects throughout the Commonwealth.
