THE RICHMOND REGION TOURISM FOUNDATION

Supporting programs that strengthen tourism

Tourism is a major financial driver in our region, with visitors contributing more than $2.6 billion to our local economy each year. One organization is dedicated to making sure this economic engine stays strong, now and in the future.

OUR MISSION
The Richmond Region Tourism Foundation’s mission is to advance the impact and benefit of tourism on the Richmond region by supporting and investing in three important areas:
Local education
Sports tourism programs
Diversity and inclusion

OUR FOCUS
This 501(c)(3) organization raises funds to support educational efforts like the free I Am Tourism ambassador training program, diversity and inclusion efforts like BLK RVA and OutRVA, and programs that help the world recognize the Richmond region’s importance as a sports tourism destination. Through the Foundation, we are also able to award scholarships each year to students entering a tourism-related profession.

OUR FUNDING
The Richmond Region Tourism Foundation raises funding through individual and corporate contributions and gifts, and also through three key events: the Richmond Region Open, the RVA Sports Awards, and the Tourism Awards & Annual Meeting.

Your support of the Richmond Region Tourism Foundation can help preserve and expand the success we’ve experienced as a visitor destination. Please, consider making a tax-deductible donation to Richmond Region Tourism's Foundation. Click here to get started.
