Businesses of Promise
Local business leaders are the backbone of our economy. Richmond Promise scholars are the backbone of Richmond’s future. One of the core goals of the Richmond Promise is to prepare our students to thrive in the 21st century workforce and begin their careers in Richmond. Many of our scholars and their parents are patrons and employees of local businesses. Our scholars have the desire to come back and give back to the Richmond community.
We look to partner with passionate, driven business leaders who are interested in investing in the future of Richmond to join our group of Business Leaders of Promise, which will involve:
- A pledged gift of general support
- Providing volunteer, internship, or job opportunities for our scholars
- Engaging in community outreach by sharing the story of Richmond Promise
All Business Leaders of the Promise will be featured in our public materials and on our website, and will receive a plaque to hang in their businesses.

” Richmond promise helped me out financially and made a big impact. Some people might think $1000 or $1500 is not a lot but for me it meant if I was getting my books for that semester and being able to pay for rent if I was short on money. I don’t know how I would of afford paying for my books if it wasn’t for Richmond Promise. I’m really grateful and blessed for the opportunity I was getting to help me out in my college career. ”
