Community Foundation for a greater Richmond site visit Leanne Petroziello Program Officer – Educational Success August 31, 2023

Nonprofit organizations play an important role in maintaining the health and vibrancy of our region. We believe in their work and we are committed to helping them be successful. In fact, our own success to create positive change depends on it.

The Community Foundation maintains a solid commitment to build a strong and sustainable network of local nonprofits. Community organizations are important partners in understanding the needs of our community and where our collective resources can be useful. We not only provide funding opportunities, but also facilitate collaborations, connections and leadership programs that help nonprofits achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness.

We Had Some Visitors On Sunday!

There were VR games for kids inside the Aetna bus, free blood pressure and BMI checks for grownups, free hygiene kits and school supplies for all — and lots more! Aetna is such a wonderful source for helpful information about health and wellness.

If you missed out visiting with us and the Aetna reps on Sunday, you’re in luck: the Aetna bus (with all its fun activities and freebies!) will be returning to MAD4YU on September 24.

Mark your calendars! You don’t want to miss this! 🙂
