Seed Funding

The Richmond Promise was initially made possible by a seed-investment from the Chevron Corporation’s Environmental and Community Investment Agreement with the City of Richmond


We couldn’t do our work without our network of passionate supporters who provide the funding needed to achieve our mission. We are grateful to all of our partners who share our vision of a thriving Richmond community where all young people have the tools, support, and resources to achieve their dreams of college and career.
