UPDATE: Special COVID-19 Richmond Promise Scholars Rapid Response Fund

We are in action-planning mode as we work to support our college students amid COVID-19 and the move to online learning and in some cases complete campus closure. We’ve reached out to all of our scholars and are hearing about a number of ways they need help. Their main needs are:

  • Access to technology that will allow them to study remotely (ie: internet and computer access)

  • Assistance traveling from their campuses home

  • Unexpected food and living expenses due to campus closure and job instability for students and families, particularly students and parents who are undocumented

To support these additional needs, we are raising an emergency fund to help students get hot spots and computers, support their travel home, and provide grocery store gift certificates. Please consider giving today.


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.
