Announcing the 2nd Round of Community Impact Grants

The Community Foundation is dedicated to understanding the diverse needs of our community and the organizations that are effectively addressing them. We immerse ourselves in the community to build relationships and stay alert to emerging trends and effective approaches. It allows us to respond to our donors' interests, build awareness around local issues, and identify high-impact opportunities that will have the greatest impact for residents of Greater Richmond.

As we proudly announce the latest round of Community Impact grants, we are pleased to share with you 64 local organizations that are advancing important work in four primary areas—Community Vibrancy, Economic Prosperity, Educational Success, and Health & Wellness. This annual grant program, split into two rounds as a response to emerging impact of the pandemic, is separate but complimentary to grants awarded from the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund.
