Give the Gift of College Success

Invest in the future of Richmond.

Join Our Promise, So Our Students Can Focus On What Matters

Amid the tumult, Richmond Promise Scholars are thriving. Every day our Scholars lead clubs, balance jobs/internships, manage impressive academic course loads, and engage with their communities through volunteering, advocacy opportunities, and various extracurriculars at over 100 higher education institutions across the country. As they prepare to become the next generation of leaders, the last thing our RP Scholars need is an unexpected emergency to divide their energy and focus. Invest in our Scholars, their futures, and our community by giving the gift of college/career success and supporting the launch of the Richmond Promise Scholar Resiliency Fund.

My major is nursing and this pandemic has affected me a lot. I have a 1 year old and I’m running low on money. I want to buy stuff for school but I barely have enough for food/rent/gas and my baby’s dad lost his job due to covid. It’s really stressful. I want to continue with school – hopefully you can help us.
