Serving the community isn’t just about funding. It’s about time, energy and ideas. Our staff welcomes the opportunity to align and strengthen our community by learning how to best support our nonprofit partners and their activities and initiatives. We are delighted to meet with organizations attempting to improve the life of residents within the city of Richmond and the surrounding counties of Chesterfield and Henrico.

Let’s have a conversation about community, together.
Our Program Areas
We are interested in children and their academic opportunities and success.
We will support organizations and projects for children ages 0-18, and their parents/caregivers, to ensure children are prepared for kindergarten, are engaged in school, thrive academically, and graduate on time with the necessary skills and opportunities for success. We think that investing in programs that enrich whole families and whole neighborhoods is a good idea.
Our founders were innovative, creative, and hard-working community servants. We celebrate their legacy when we welcome opportunities to work directly with organizations to think bigger and think differently.
We will partner with people and organizations whose longer-term visions will break through the status quo and lead to meaningful transformation across our community. We believe that innovative solutions to community issues will create better futures for children throughout the Richmond region.
We believe that strong nonprofits make a strong Richmond region.
Building the resilience of people, neighborhoods and nonprofits is what we do. Whether it is funding leadership development or strategic planning, staffing, communications or general operating support, we know capacity funding can fundamentally enhance and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of people and organizations to strengthen the entire community.
