What We Fund

Our Approach

Serving the community isn’t just about funding. It’s about time, energy, and ideas. Our board and staff welcome the opportunity to unite and strengthen our community through support of focus-aligned nonprofit partners.  We are delighted to meet with organizations supporting early childhood care and education (ECCE) and enhancing our region as a vibrant and attractive place to live.  We are available to answer your questions via email or by phone — see our staff listing for contact information.

Our Focus Areas

Early Childhood Care and Education

We recognize that investments in early childhood care and education have the power to change the trajectory of individual lives and entire families, as well as deliver significant returns for the community. We are committed to deeply investing in early childhood for children from birth through 5 years old.  

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. 

Capacity Building

Capacity building support is crucial for nonprofits because it enhances their ability to fulfill their mission, build infrastructure, promote sustainability, and strengthen their governance and leadership in order to create a greater impact in their communities. Robins Foundation believes strongly in the importance of capacity building and supports local nonprofits’ access to and participation in two capacity building programs, Catchafire and Network for Good.
