The Community Foundation Moved to Scott’s Addition!

As of this past week, the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond has a new home in Scott’s Addition – 3409 Moore Street!  For those familiar with the area, we’re located behind Tazza Kitchen and across the street from Tang & Biscuit.

In March, the Foundation announced a move of its headquarters after an over twenty-year tenancy at the Boulders Office Park in North Chesterfield.

“We are excited for this next step in the Foundation’s history,” said Sherrie Armstrong, President and CEO of the Community Foundation. “A move to Scott’s Addition gives us greater proximity to many of our nonprofit partners, and it places us in the center of the innovation and transformation that is happening in the City and across our region. That is what community philanthropy is all about.”

The move coincides with the Foundation’s 50th anniversary, marking decades of bringing people and organizations together to create lasting change in all areas of community life – from education and housing to health care and workforce development. A natural connector and convener, the Foundation will make its office accessible and open to nonprofits and community members. “We envision a space that will encourage shared learning, discussion and collaboration and spark new, innovative solutions for our region,” said Armstrong.

Community Foundation Announces 2018 Community Impact Grants

The Community Foundation for a greater Richmond, together with its donors, is pleased to announce Community Impact grant awards for 2018, totaling $2.83 million to 78 organizations across the region. Community Impact grants support local nonprofits whose strategies and outcomes align with the Foundation’s four focus areas: community vibrancy, economic prosperity, educational success, and health and wellness. Over the past year, the Foundation has adopted funding priorities in education, housing, and workforce development initiatives that will increase access and opportunity for low-income residents in Richmond. A significant number of grants were awarded in the City of Richmond, where economic challenges tend to be the highest, with a focus on the East End, Northside and Southside (including the Jefferson Davis Corridor) neighborhoods. Ten grants were also awarded in the Petersburg area, primarily in education. The awards support nonprofit partners who are focused on high quality programming, systems, and advocacy and policy.
