Robins Foundation’s New Strategic Direction

As we near the end of another challenging and pivotal year for many in our community, we reflect on what we have learned about the significant gaps in our early childhood education (ECE) systems and networks of support. We also recognize that investments in ECE have the power to change the trajectory of individual lives and deliver significant returns for the community.


It is for these reasons that Robins Foundation will focus our grantmaking going forward to more deeply, and more narrowly, invest in early childhood education from birth to 5 years old. This strategic shift will mean changes in the types of organizations we support. 


For more details about our new direction and the ways it will impact our grantmaking, you can view the recording and slides from our virtual information session.


We are grateful for the partnership of all our grantees, and for the important work you are doing in our community.

MISSION: To lead transformational change in the greater Richmond community by listening, learning, and engaging through innovative philanthropy that inspires solutions to society’s greatest challenges.

VISION: The Robins Foundation will advance the greater Richmond community through strategic partnerships, collaborations, and education, all of which will serve as a model for creating an environment of fairness and opportunity for everyone to thrive.
