2019 Community Impact Grants

The Community Foundation is pleased to announce community impact grants totaling just over $3 million to 83 organizations serving the Richmond region. As it relates to grantmaking, we are focused on activities that are most directly tied to increasing equity and access for low-wealth residents. 

Community impact grants are made possible by donors whose gifts help build a permanent resource to respond to our region’s needs as they change over time, and who have entrusted us to allocate charitable funds on their behalf. They also represent just a portion of the grantmaking that is overseen by the Foundation in a given year, which is why it is imperative that these dollars are well-aligned with our renewed vision – a thriving region where all individuals and families have an opportunity to succeed.
