About Us

Welcome to the Enrichmond Foundation, a cornerstone of community engagement and environmental stewardship in Richmond since 1990. Born from a partnership with the Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities, we’ve grown into an independent beacon of conservation, dedicated to the people, parks, and public spaces of our beloved city.

Our Journey

Our story began with a simple mission: to enhance the quality of life in Richmond by revitalizing its green spaces and fostering a sense of community ownership. Over the years, we’ve embarked on numerous projects, but none as close to our heart as the restoration of the Historic Evergreen and East End cemeteries. These sacred grounds, bearing the legacies of African American heroes, speak volumes of resilience, heritage, and the unbreakable spirit of our community.
