CEO Statement

May 31, 2016

Dear BIAV Friends & Supporters,

As you read this letter, I hope you will reflect on the tremendous difference your support has made in providing help, hope and healing in the lives of persons with brain injury.

FY15 saw program growth with new educational offerings, new programs, and new public awareness events.   BIAV impacted 18,500 Lives in FY2015; we served nearly 1,200 through our education programs (e.g. annual conference and webinars), nearly 1,300 in our outreach and support programs (e.g. support groups, recreational respite program), 12,000 through our public awareness activities (e.g. public service campaign, special events), and 4,000 through our advocacy work. One of our most success came through out advocacy work, which was instrumental in increasing state appropriations for community based brain injury services by more than $1 million.

We appreciate all that you have done so far; your time, talents and treasure are precious and valued resources. We are honored to be the stewards of your support, and will continue to work diligently to ensure that persons with brain injury will benefit from it.

Thank you for all you do.

Anne H. McDonnell, MPA, OTR/L
Executive Director
Brain Injury Association of Virginia
Board Chair Statement

Dear Friends,

I am honored to provide my perspective on the Brain Injury Association of Virginia’s 33rd year of providing critical support services to persons with brain injury and their caregivers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Early last year, the Board of Directors underwent a thorough self-assessment process, in an effort to identify improvements that would make the Board and the organization stronger.  We identified and implemented growth opportunities, and have begun to modify our strategic plan. We also outsourced and re-organized our finance and accounting operations to enhance our expertise and transparency and reduce our expenses.

Fundraising always remains a primary focus for the Board.  We introduced a new fundraising event in 2015 and enjoyed good success for a first time event, and plan to build on that event by making it bigger and having more fun-filled activities for all ages while providing education and awareness about the brain. !

Thank you for your generous support, in the past, present and future; with you, we are providing help, hope and healing, and making things better for others.  

Kimberly C. Moore

President of the Board
