Give the gift of college, and career success today with a charitable donation toward a scholar’s education. Your generosity is critical in helping our 501c3 nonprofit keep our Promise to support the college aspirations of Richmond’s students. Donations go directly to college scholarships and wraparound success programming. With your help, we can make secondary education accessible for all Richmond, California student scholars.

UPDATE:  Supporting Scholars through and beyond the pandemic: Welcome our permanent Resiliency Fund!

Whether it’s working for local government, actively influencing cultures on their campuses, giving back to the classrooms that shaped them, or waking up every day to shape a future full of passion, pride, and purpose, our Richmond Promise Scholars, are hard at work actualizing a million incredible dreams.

Through our COVID-19 response initiatives, we’ve learned that our students need emergency funding support for essentials like rent, food, and technology. Understanding the impact these pressing needs have on our Scholar’s journey to and through higher education, we ask for your support via our Scholar Resiliency Fund. These funds specifically support Scholars with unexpected, immediate needs so that they can remain enrolled and stay focused on all the wonderful things they’re up to.

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 I was getting my books for that semester and able to pay rent if I was short on money. I don’t know how I would have afforded paying for my books if it wasn’t for Richmond Promise.
