Supporting programs that strengthen tourism

The impact of tourism in our region is seen every day – it’s a major financial driver here, with 7.7 million visitors contributing more than $2.6 billion to our local economy each year. Tourism helps support local restaurants, attractions, hotels and businesses, which employ more than 24,000 local workers.

The Richmond Region Tourism Foundation is dedicated to making sure this economic engine stays strong, now and in the future. We work to educate the public about tourism’s importance, and help our next generation of tourism professionals through scholarships. We support programs that drive inclusion. And through grants and sponsorships, we’re helping drive up numbers for important economic engines such as sports tourism and African American travel. Learn more about our BLK RVA sponsorship program here.

We can’t do any of this without the help of our donors. Please help support the Richmond Region Tourism Foundation. Your dollars can help bring millions into our region, now and in the future.
