Purpose and Activities

The foundation has a strong interest in investing in programs that enrich the whole family (and whole neighborhoods) in order to alter intergenerational poverty in greater Richmond’s emerging neighborhoods.


Established in 1957 in VA - E. Claiborne Robins created the Robins Foundation in 1957. Mr. Robins is best known for his transforming gifts to the University of Richmond, but he also supported a wide range of Richmond causes during his lifetime. His philanthropy reflected his affection for the community that had nurtured him and helped him to build the A.H. Robins Company. At his death in 1995, he provided generously for the foundation in his estate
