The Community Foundation is about connecting people with causes that matter to them. For many, the joy of philanthropy comes from the people and organizations they are able to meet along the way. Even if you are not ready to establish your own charitable fund, we offer several opportunities to join with like-minded members of the community to make a difference. Discover the power of giving together!
Impact 100 Richmond
Initiated by an enthusiastic group of volunteers in 2009, Impact 100 Richmond is a grassroots effort that champions the power of women giving together. The goal is to change the lives of women and their families by transforming a local nonprofit through a significant, collective financial investment. Our strategy is simple: 100 women give $1,000 each to create a $100,000 grant to benefit a mutually-selected nonprofit. More than 100 women are welcome to join, however, and our impact will be that much greater! Learn more
