Community

Respecting, Serving, & Supporting Our Community

At RiverFront, we are committed to making a meaningful difference in the communities where we live and work. Our three pillars of investing in our community are:

  • Charitable Giving of Time and Talent
  • Supporting Local Organizations and the Arts
  • Supporting the Interests of our Associates.

RiverFront offers to provide Matching Gifts when our associates make personal contributions, up to $500 annually. We also encourage our associates to volunteer at the organizations of their choice, allotting four hours per month of Paid Volunteer Time (in addition to firm sponsored volunteer opportunities.)

Our REACH (RiverFront's Engagement with And Commitment to our Hometowns) Committee serves as liaison with our communities partners, organizes volunteer opportunities and fundraisers, and manages our Annual Charitable Giving Partner relationship.

Charitable Giving Partners

Each year our firm selects an Annual Charitable Giving Partner, a non-profit organization in our community where our goal is to make significant contributions both financially and through volunteerism. In addition to choosing a new partner annually, we strive to remain connected to our past Partners long-term.

Our 2021 Charitable Giving Partner is Connor’s Heroes. Founded in 2006 as a salute to Connor Goodwin, who triumphed after 2-1/2 years of cancer treatment as a preschooler, Connor’s Heroes is named after Connor and in honor of the heroes who supported his family throughout his treatment. Today, Connor’s Heroes is a Richmond, Virginia-based nonprofit dedicated to helping the families in Central Virginia cope with childhood cancer and our community’s researchers conquer it.

A Message from our 2021 Charitable Giving Partner

“When a family registers with Connor’s Heroes, they quickly realize they are not alone. They have a community of heroes ready to help throughout their childhood cancer journey. The Connor’s Heroes Bags and Backpacks program provides support and comfort to families facing a cancer diagnosis during a time that can become quickly overwhelming,” said Connor’s Heroes Executive Director Celia Tetlow Martin. “Through our partnership with RiverFront Investment Group and their generous $25,000 gift, this program will be fully funded for the entire year. Thank you, Riverfront Investment Group, for helping to making sure no parent will face a child’s cancer alone!”
