Celebrating people who 'power good' in RVA


MARCH 28, 2019 — Now in its 6th year, Power of Good is a celebration for National Volunteer Week to honor those who power good in our community. Led by The Spark Mill and HandsOn Greater Richmond (a service of the Community Foundation), this annual recognition event asks the public to submit the name of a person who is "powering good" in our region through service — a volunteer, a neighbor, a colleague, a family member or friend.

Power of Good honorees will be featured on the Power of Good website and are invited to a celebration in their honor on May 22 in Scott’s Addition (more details to come). At the celebration, the Power of Good honorees, the organizations they work with, and the community will come together over food, drinks, and fun.

Submissions are anonymous and will be open until April 8. There is no limit to how many people you can recognize.


Below are all the different ways one can engage in the “Power of Good”:

Recognize: Tell us, in 20 words or less, who you know who powers good in the Richmond region. It could be a volunteer, your neighbor, a colleague, a family member or friend. You can submit as many names as you’d like by April 8.

Celebrate: Join us at the party in their honor on Wednesday, May 22, 4:30-6:30 p.m., in Scott’s Addition (details coming soon) where we will recognize and meet up with honorees, community organizations, and neighbors over food, drinks, and fun. Free, but tickets are required (registration coming soon).

Publicize: Submit your volunteer recognition event, award, or campaign for us to share.

Resources: Access volunteer recognition best practices and tools.

Map: See where all the good work is being done in our region.
