Upcoming Events

The Community Foundation is privileged to work with all the key groups that make up our ecosystem of local philanthropy – from individual donors and volunteers to local nonprofits and funders. 


Together, we believe we can leverage our collective strengths and amplify our impact. This is why we are committed to hosting events and opportunities that help forge connections, stimulate innovative thought, and push us towards greater alignment and collaboration.


Our learning agenda is designed to:

  • Encourage individuals and businesses to fully explore their options for civic engagement;
  • Learn together about the issues that are most pivotal to making the Richmond region a place where all residents have an equal opportunity to thrive.

Below you will find a list of our upcoming learning opportunities. If you have ideas for future topics or convenings, please share them with us at
