Early Grant Information for NGOs

This fund, formerly known as the RVA Solar Fund, was developed by a group of donors who approached the Community Foundation to learn more about the use of solar energy in the Richmond region. Their first collaborative grant program encouraged the deployment of solar energy systems at nonprofit and public facilities. They are now focused on a broader initiative to advance local conservation efforts.
