Community Foundation for a greater RichmondIn a year full of challenges, many of us have taken time to reflect on what is important and what more we can do to build a stronger, bolder and more equitable Richmond region. Today, we are excited to announce the creation of the Amandla Fund for Social and Racial Justice – the first collaborative, Black-led endowment designed to mobilize long-term investments that will strengthen the Black community and work towards racial justice on a local scale.
We are grateful for the incredible leadership of the Ujima Legacy Fund and SisterFund, and the important early investments from Altria Group, Dominion Energy, the Community Foundation and several individual donors who have shepherded this initiative in its initial phase of development.
