Grankmaking principles include Racial Equity component

Four principles underpin the Hampton Roads Community Foundation’s grantmaking:

  • Impact
  • Racial Equity
  • Collaboration and Partnership
  • Innovation and Creativity

Racial Equity was added in 2019. We encourage you to read the community foundation's Racial Equity statement here.
