Established about 1934 in VA - The Memorial Foundation for Children began in 1805 as the Female Humane Association. This home for Richmond orphans was organized and governed by a group of dedicated women. One of Virginia’s first charitable institutions, the organization was supported by political, social and religious leaders of Richmond. To reflect the changing needs over the years, the organization was renamed the Memorial Home for Girls, then the Memorial Foundation and later the Memorial Foundation for Children, providing treatment for emotionally disturbed children. In 1970, the Foundation became solely a funding organization to assist other non-profit agencies in serving children in the Richmond area. Today the Memorial Foundation for Children, still governed by a volunteer board comprised of women who are active in the community and knowledgeable about the needs of children, provides support for projects and activities to benefit children.
