An Affiliate of the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond

River Counties Community Foundation is one of three affiliates supported by the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond. As an extension of their mission to serve, engage and inspire people through philanthropy, the affiliate program was developed to help smaller, rural communities encourage local giving to address their own unique needs.

The Richmond team provides cost-effective, centralized professional services like financial and investment management, administration and technical expertise so our local leadership can focus on asset building and community needs. Together, we are working to achieve a lasting impact in the places we call home.
