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 education 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 Education

We recognize that investments in early childhood education (ECE) have the power to change the trajectory of individual lives and deliver significant returns for the community. We are committed to deeply investing in ECE 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. 

Director Initiated Grants

Each member of our Board of Directors can sponsor a limited number of grants to organizations they consider deserving of support, regardless of focus area or location. These recommendations are strictly at the discretion of individual board members. Organizations may not solicit board members or apply for these funds.
