Fostering an equitable
and healthy Richmond region.

On Equity and Belonging

In order to achieve equity we must feel a sense of connection – of shared responsibility – for ensuring that all in our community have an opportunity to thrive.

Tomorrow belongs to those of us who conceive of it as belonging to everyone; who lend the best of ourselves to it, and with joy.
Audre Lorde

Health Equity

Everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy and well as possible.

Racial Equity

When race no longer determines socioeconomic outcomes.

Grant Opportunities

As we have endeavored to provide critical support for mission-aligned organizations, we have deployed all available funding for both capacity building and opportunity grants this fiscal year. These resources have made it possible for partners to increase their internal staffing and address urgent, unexpected challenges.

We are not accepting grant applications at this time. We announce new grant opportunities through our newsletter. Please subscribe for updates.
