Annual Events

New Member Programs
Throughout the year we host member orientations to bring new members up to speed on everything we have to offer. Additionally, every summer we host a Summer Soiree for all new members from the previous membership year. 

Social Pop-In Recruitment Events
Throughout the year, we host Social Pop-Ins for anyone (members and guests) who wants to learn more about Impact 100 RVA. These casual gatherings are a great way to network with other members, to stay updated on all-things-Impact and to learn how you can make the most of your membership. All socials will last approximately two hours; feel free to pop in and out as your schedule permits. 

Registration is open for our February Social Pop-In on February 12 at CraftedRVA in Libbie Mill-Midtown.

In-Home GatheringsThroughout the year, select members host informal gatherings in their homes to discuss the membership experience in a more personal setting. If you (and a guest) are interested in attending, or if you would like to host a gathering in your home, please email Membership Liaison Julie Fritz.

Educational Programs  
Each fall, members are invited to the Big Kick to celebrate a new year of giving and learning together. This event typically is a social gathering for members and their guests with a panel presentation centered on current philanthropic endeavors in RVA. 

In the winter, the Big Learn offers an opportunity for members to hear from local leaders about a timely and relevant issue affecting our region. 

2020 BIG LEARN
"Urban Renewal's Scars: Policies That
Altered Richmond's Landscape"

Tuesday, January 28 | 6-8 PM | Williams Mullen
RSVP Deadline: January 24
(This is a MEMBERS-ONLY event. Join or renew your membership here.)

At this year's Big Learn, we are diving deeper into Greater Fulton's history. Come listen to the story of our city and its residents, and how families have overcome dark times and unjust policies. We'll hear what was happening on the local and national levels in the mid-1970s that contributed to Richmond's only neighborhood-wide urban renewal program and how that legacy impacts us today. You'll leave with a better understanding of why our Neighborhood Catalyst Grant is so important and why Fulton is a unique community for our first partnership. 

Special Guests:

The Reverend Benjamin P. Campbell is an expert on poverty and race in the Richmond region and author of Richmond’s Unhealed History. In his book, Rev. Campbell examines our city's rich history through the lens of Christian ethics. He takes readers through colonialization, slavery, war, segregation, urban renewal and suburban sprawl and reveals how the injustices of those periods still haunt Richmond today. You can buy his compelling book locally at Chop Suey Books in Carytown. 

Linda Sutton was a young girl when her family was forced out of Fulton. She remains actively engaged in the community as a bridge between old and new residents. She is a board member of the Friends of Historic Fulton Memorial Park and a member of the Impact 100 RVA Neighborhood Catalyst Grant Committee. Ms. Sutton shared her experiences with the Historic Fulton Oral History Project and VPM's Virginia Currents Radio series.

Michael Paul Williams writes for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. His columns, which run twice a week, focus on local government, matters of social justice and how unresolved issues of race, poverty and the past continue to inform and afflict Richmond today. He wrote about Greater Fulton's quiet rebirth in 2011.

RSVP DEADLINE for the Big Learn is January 24. Register HERE.

NEW MEMBERS are invited to attend an orientation at 5:30 PM to connect with other new members. You'll also meet members of the Leadership Team who will share tried-and-true ways to make the most of your membership. Please register separately for this event.

Refreshments will be provided by Ms. Girlee's Kitchen, relocating soon to Fulton!
