Like you, the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond has been monitoring the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact for our community. It is times like this when philanthropy can lean into its leadership role and unite our community for the greater good. At the Community Foundation, we are responding to the uncertainty with proactive action and collaboration to better inform you about what is happening and how you can help.
We have established the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund in partnership with the Emergency Management Alliance of Central Virginia and PlanRVA to support organizations that are addressing the immediate needs, longer term effects of the pandemic, and community recovery. The Community Foundation is seeding the fund with an initial $500,000. We welcome additional contributions from our donors peer foundations and corporate partners.
Additional contributors include: Altria, Atlantic Union Bank, Bank of America, The Cabell Foundation, Capital One, CarMax Foundation, Dominion Energy, Genworth, Jenkins Foundation, Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation, Robins Foundation, VCU Health System, Wells Fargo and several individual donors.
We not only face this challenge together, but we will also get through it together. Thank you to the countless individuals and organizations that make the Greater Richmond region a strong, resilient community.
The Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund with an initial gift of $500,000. The fund will provide flexible support for community-based organizations serving the most vulnerable in our community, and those facing hardship due to reduced revenue. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis to nonprofit organizations only; no individuals. See more details here
Repercussions of the pandemic have the potential to threaten the fiscal health and long-term sustainability of many organizations. Individuals with funds at the Community Foundation can make grant recommendations to organizations of their choice at any time.
National and International Organizations
If you are interested in national or worldwide response, here are a few options:
Be alert to scams
This is a time to be cautious about emails and links that may be sent to you from organizations or people you do not know. These may be fundraising or phishing scams that attempt to take advantage of your generosity. If you are suspicious of a solicitation, please contact us first.
While many public events and volunteer activities in our region have been cancelled, our HandsOn Greater Richmond team is working closely with organizations to share their most immediate needs while dealing with coronavirus—from virtual volunteering to projects that ensure essential services can continue. In particular, we are partnering with schools, food banks/pantries, and homeless shelters.
Resources for Nonprofits
Can my organization be considered for support from the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund?
We understand the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting nonprofits in many ways. We are working hard to ensure that the grants awarded meet the greatest needs in communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. In order to move resources quickly, we are not hosting a formal application process for the Fund. You may share your needsto let us know how your organization is affected, help us assess emergent needs in the region, and to inform our decisions going forward.

Resources to support nonprofit planning and response
We’ve compiled resources on ConnectVA, our nonprofit information hub, to give guidance to organizations on nonprofit emergency planning and response. You will find an abundance of information, and we will periodically add new information or tools as we learn of them.

RICHMOND, Va. – Richmond Memorial Health Foundation (RMHF) is launching an Equity and Health Fellowship program to bring regional knowledge and diverse perspectives to its work on social,economic, and structural conditions that influence health outcomes.
The Fellowship program is part of RMHF’s new strategic focus on equity and health that will be formally announced in December. Fellows will serve as strategic advisors to the Foundation, informing its equity and health agenda.
Eighteen fellows will be selected for the 2017 program. Fellows will be senior leaders representing local government and nonprofit organizations actively working to foster equity and health in the City of Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico and Powhatan. The Fellowship program will run from January through October 2017. Grants of $12,000 per organization will support the release time of the senior leader selected as a Fellow.
“Reducing health disparities cannot be done by any one organization or sector alone. RMHF seeks partners to help us approach our work with an equity lens and to consider how we might apply tools beyond traditional grantmaking. By finding creative ways to focus our efforts and connect with other organizations that align with our mission, RMHF can better support and accelerate efforts to foster an equitable and healthy Richmond region,” said RMHF Board Chair Michele A.W. McKinnon.
Mark D. Constantine, RMHF President & CEO, added, “We seek applicants who are deeply committed to reducing health disparities and increasing equity in the work of their organizations and have the energy and interest to help RMHF create and implement a broad strategy for achieving its mission.”
Goals of the Fellowship program include informing an equity and health framework to guide RMHF and building a new network of advocates committed to fostering an equitable and healthy Richmond Region.
RMHF will host an in-person session for interested applicants on Friday, October 21st from 10:00-11:30 AM at the Foundation’s offices. During the session, Mark Constantine will provide background on the Fellowship program, discuss the emerging curriculum and expectations for Fellows, and answer questions. RMHF will post all questions and responses online at www.equityandhealth.org.
Now in its fifth year, the Ujima Legacy Fund has harnessed the generosity of its 40 members to award two grants of $20,000 each to Higher Achievement and Mega Mentors. Created with the goal to increase the philanthropic impact of African American men in the Greater Richmond region, the Ujima Legacy Fund focuses its grant program on organizations working to empower youth through education-related programs. Cumulative grantmaking now totals $168,000 to 8 area nonprofits.
Higher Achievement closes the opportunity gap for underserved students through intensive after-school and summer programs that provide expanded learning, mentorship and opportunity. Scholars begin as rising 5th and 6th graders and remain in the program through 8th grade. Support from the Ujima Legacy Fund will allow Higher Achievement to grow in response to increased demand and high retention by scaling programming at the newest of their four sites – Binford and Wilder Middle Schools. It means that next school year more than 300 scholars will realize gains equivalent to an extra 48 days of learning in math and an extra 30 days in reading; and most importantly, they will be on track for college with the character, confidence and skills to succeed.
Mega Mentors was created in 2009 when then superintendent Dr. Marcus Newsome asked African American community leaders to be role models for students in Chesterfield County. While intentional about working with African American students, the volunteer-run program is designed to improve academic performance, increase graduation rates and reduce disciplinary issues for all middle and high school students who are underserved or disenfranchised. This year, 150 volunteer mentors work with 500 middle and high school students in 7 schools. Grant funding will support a part-time coordinator to help grow the program to serve more schools and students, provide greater consistency and build stronger partnerships and collaborations.
In 2013, Ujima Legacy Fund launched to make philanthropy engaging and accessible for African American men in the Richmond region. Ujima is named after the third day of Kwanzaa and means collective work and responsibility. One of three giving circles created in partnership with The Community Foundation, Ujima members pool contributions of $1,100 each to generate greater community impact. Together, they select at least one local nonprofit organization annually that they feel best demonstrates the ability to empower youth through education-related initiatives, with emphasis on underserved youth.
