Make a Gift

In addition to producing events, The Neptune Festival goes Beyond the Boardwalk to give back to the City that we love. We provide exposure and fundraising opportunities for nonprofit, civic, and charitable organizations.

Memorial and Honor Gifts

A gift in honor or memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone – or a special occasion – while helping the Neptune Festival fulfill its mission of providing entertainment that enhances the quality of life for Virginia Beach residents and visitors.

Give In Memory

Annual Giving

The Annual Giving Fund is designed to ensure the continuation of the City’s “Official Celebration” for years to come. Contributions are welcome at any level, however, those individuals donating $2,500 or more will be recognized as the “Scepter Society.” A special evening will take place to celebrate and thank each Scepter Society member.

Beyond the Boardwalk

Your donation supports other nonprofits in the City.

The Neptune Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Each year, nonprofit organizations collectively earn over $100,000 from their involvement with the Festival. Not only are we sharing funds, but organizations given space on the boardwalk have much to gain – animals adopted, donations received, and awareness raised!
