Our mission is to serve the people, parks, and public space of the City of Richmond. Since 1990, we have enacted our mission by supporting The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities through citizen involvement, education, and fundraising. The most prevailing of these services is acting as an umbrella non-profit organization for over one hundred volunteer groups and special initiatives or ‘Friends’ groups.
Our partners include community and civic associations, outdoor enthusiasts, garden and history groups, and other citizen-based groups whose primary interest is to maintain, restore, preserve, or improve Richmond’s public recreational resources.
By affiliating with our Foundation and becoming an official partner, these committed individuals are given the opportunity to apply for grants and solicit tax-deductible contributions.
In addition, they can lean on us for organizational leadership, resources and networking. The Enrichmond Foundation is governed by a board of directors and works closely with The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities. This relationship began when the Foundation was first established in 1990 with the assistance of the Citizen’s Advisory Board and The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities. The purpose is and has always been to provide a means for citizens to give back to their communities.
