Vigran Family Foundation

Medical Education Program Press Release

Lead Gift Press Release

Lifelong Richmond resident Stanley Vigran considered
forming a private foundation as a way to support causes that
were important to him and his family. As a former Wayne
County Foundation board member, however, he understood
there was a way to use the Foundation to achieve his goals
with fewer complications.

By creating a supporting organization, called the Vigran
Family Foundation, he and his family retained many of the
benefits of a private foundation while leveraging many
other benefits. In addition to a $1 million establishing gift
in 2001, a very generous bequest came to the Vigran Family
Foundation on Stan's passing in 2004.

Today, the Vigran Family Foundation supports the charitable
purposes of the Wayne County Foundation, and especially
those advancing theater and the arts, higher education,
healthcare, and Jewish causes.
