Community Foundation for a greater Richmond

Community Foundation for a greater Richmond, serving Richmond and Central Virginia, exists to serve its donors and community. Since 1968, we’ve been solving problems, preserving legacies and building permanent endowments.

In the intervening years, we’ve granted more than $750 million to hundreds of local nonprofits. And with more than 900 funds of all sizes, we’re here to stay.

Partner with us. We want to see you realize your philanthropic vision.

What is a Community Foundation?

We’re a public charity that helps people like you accomplish philanthropic goals through a named, charitable fund. You make grants through your fund, primarily to benefit a defined geographical area.

Our Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of leading citizens and run by professionals who are experts in community need. We’re committed to keeping you abreast both of the challenges facing our area and the answers local nonprofits are developing in response.
