Consider Being a Donor
Richmond Community Foundation is dedicated to helping donors achieve the greatest impact while offering each donor a unique giving experience, tailored to suit your situation and goals. Let RCF work with you to help you invest in your community!
You may contribute to an existing program or fund, or establish your own unique fund based on your personal charitable goals.
To give to an existing fund:
You may contribute with a check, credit card, stocks, or other assets. You may also make a contribution online here.
Bequests are made through wills or trusts after death. A person can leave their entire estate, a specific amount or a percentage of their estate to Richmond Community Foundation, which grants them membership to the Legacy Society. This is an especially attractive way to establish a family legacy for the community while minimizing federal estate taxes. You may direct bequests to an area of interest or to a specific organization. Rather than writing specific bequests to several charities, you may prefer to create a single fund or add your estate to an existing charitable fund at Richmond Community Foundation. We are bound by law to carry out our donors’ charitable interests in perpetuity, acting as steward for the funds and ensuring that the recipients continue to be viable charities.
