What does it mean to be “mission-aligned”?

Based on our own mission of “fostering an equitable and healthy Richmond region,” the core work of mission-aligned organizations:

Advances health and racial equity.

Embodies an understanding of the social determinants of health.

Impacts those most affected by inequities.

In addition, we will give priority to organizations that show evidence of internal work at the Board and staff levels to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

General Operating Support Grants

Thank you for your interest in RMHF’s General Operating Support (GOS) grant program.

As a part of our commitment to strengthening partnerships and supporting ongoing efforts in alignment with our Strategic Framework, we are inviting our current multi-year GOS partners to apply for additional resources. This will provide additional time for them to build on their momentum, improve strategic planning and financial resilience, navigate uncertainties, and increase the effectiveness of their programs.  

RMHF will not release an open RFP for 2024 multi-year GOS at this time. However, we will continue to offer capacity building and opportunity investment grants until available funds are expended.
