Investments & Financials
The Community Foundation has grown substantially since its inception in 1968, reflecting the vision and integrity of its leaders and the extraordinary spirit of the people of Richmond and Central Virginia.
As a long-term investor in the Greater Richmond region, our overall investment strategy is to grow the community's endowment to ensure assets are available to address community needs and opportunities in perpetuity. Our team, guided by an experienced volunteer investment committee, seeks to earn the most efficient rate of return through a variety of investment options. We manage philanthropic assets entrusted to our care according to best practices, and we hold ourselves to rigorous standards to mitigate risk and identify opportunities to add value.
Fund holders may choose from the following three investment options, each designed to meet a range of philanthropic goals and time horizons.
