Collective Giving

Discover how to amplify your impact by pooling your resources with the Community Foundation to address critical needs or with other donors who share your interests. It can be a great way to meet people, learn about the issues, engage more deeply and award more significant grants. 

Fulfilling Ways to Give Together

Community Impact Funds

These funds allow you to have broad impact in the community. Gifts like yours provide the Community Foundation with greater flexibility to respond to the changing needs of our community in real time. Whether you choose to make an unrestricted gift or direct it to support your area of interest, you can have peace of mind we are working hard every day to identify community solutions that will have the most impact.

Giving Circles

Giving circles are collective giving programs that bring donors together around common interests. Each year, members pool their resources and make grant decisions together. It is a fun, social and rewarding way to make a greater difference together than they would separately.

  • Impact 100 Richmond
    A women's philanthropy group that aims to award at least one $100,000 transformational grant each year to a local nonprofit with a big idea and great potential
  • SisterFund
    A grassroots donor education and grantmaking initiative that unites civic-minded African American women's ideas and action through philanthropy
  • Ujima Legacy Fund
    A forum of civic-minded African American men who are increasing their philanthropic presence and impact in the metro Richmond community 

Giving Together Initiatives

Involvement with collaborative, responsive, and regional solutions is an integral part of our work at the Community Foundation. From time to time we will share bold, promising initiatives that the Community Foundation has supported, but need additional support to reach ambitious goals to benefit the people and communities within our region. We invite you to join us in learning about and supporting these critical efforts that are offering solutions to complex issues facing our region.
