WHAT WE FUND

Early Childhood 

For children to have the opportunity to thrive, they require access to high-quality early care and educational experiences. We support the parents, providers and infrastructure that make that possible.

Dynamic Community

A vibrant community enriches the wellbeing of our families, draws residents and tourists to our city, builds community pride, and makes Richmond a positive and dynamic place to live. We invest in programs that enhance our region and are open to and benefit the entire community. 

OUR MISSION

OUR VISION

OUR LEGACY

To lead transformational change in the greater Richmond community by listening, learning, and engaging through innovative philanthropy that inspires solutions to society’s greatest challenges.

Robins Foundation envisions a vibrant and unified Richmond, in which our children are prepared for bright futures, our communities are culturally enriched, and our region grows as a positive and dynamic place to live.

Our founders, Lora M. and E. Claiborne Robins, were passionate about the power of education and community building to transform lives. We continue to honor that legacy through our focus on early childhood education and dynamic community.
