Grants to Richmond area, Virginia nonprofits for programs and projects in the areas of arts and culture, education, the environment, family, and health and wellness. Information Sessions will be held on December 5 and 14. Funded programs should significantly benefit the residents of the City of Richmond, and/or the Counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico, Goochland, and/or Powhatan.
Impact 100 Richmond seeks to fund transformational projects that meet the following criteria:
- Foster change and have a long-term positive impact
- Are programmatic and/or capital (i.e. building) in nature
- Are new programs or expansions/improvements of existing programs that can change the way an organization or a community operates
- Can demonstrate specific measurable goals
Preference will be given to programs and projects that positively affect women and children. Organizations must apply under one of the above listed focus areas. The funding source recognizes that many organizations and projects can fit into more than one category, but applicants must choose only one for their proposal. It is recommended that applicants consider which focus area best represents the emphasis of the proposed project.
Funded programs and projects should address the following areas:
Arts and Culture: Projects that develop and enrich the community and/or the lives of women, children and families through the expressive arts or enhanced cultural opportunities.
Education: Projects that further the educational process or improve access to education for children and/or adults.
Environment: Projects that restore, preserve, revitalize or enhance physical or natural surroundings to create a sustainable community.
Family: Projects that strengthen and enhance the lives of children and families.
Health and Wellness: Projects that improve the mental and/or physical well-being of people.
