Community Conversation – Philanthropy
December 6, 2016 | 6-8 pm
Libbie Mill Library (2100 Libbie Lake E St, Richmond, VA 23230)

The Valentine’s Community Conversations spark dialogue about hot local topics. This year, the Capital Region Collaborative (along with Richmond Magazine and TMI Consulting) is thrilled to support these conversations with research and data from our regional community indicators project.

Each conversation will focus on “measuring what we value” and will explore a different community value through small group conversations and panels of local experts.

  • Emily Watson, Director of Strategic Engagement at United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg (Generational Giving and Motivation)
  • Vanessa Diamond, Director of HandsOn Greater Richmond (The Importance of Volunteerism in Philanthropy)
