Celebrating a Milestone

Aug 20, 2018 | News

If you follow the work of the Friends, and of course we hope you do, you already know that our 2017-18 funding initiative is to raise capital required for the development of the JRPS master plan.

This plan will establish a work plan for sustaining the legacy of conservation and recreation provided by our award-winning park by clearly identifying tangible goals and ways to facilitate their implementation. We are pleased to announce that we have received commitments for the initial $250,000 required to support this effort. We want to thank these organizations for their contributions:

  • Beirne Carter Foundation
  • Friends of the James River Park
  • Dominion Foundation
  • New Market Corp
  • CoStar
  • Richmond City Health District
  • Community Foundation
  • Venture Richmond
  • Mary Ann and Lou Wilson
  • 4th District Council Member Kristen Larson

A special thanks to the Beirne Carter Foundation for their generous matching grant of $75,000, helping us raise the final $150,000 for the master plan.

The park is a great investment and it plays a vital role in making Richmond the best place to live, work and play.
