Tributes & Memorials

“Our son Russell received the best care during the 22 years that he lived at Richmond. Over the years my husband and I saw firsthand how Richmond provided exceptional supports with love and compassion for individuals with varying needs and their families. Donations help Richmond continue to provide the gifts of love, hope and daily support that so many rely on each and every day to lead a quality life.”

The Vogelsperger Family

Imagine if your child or loved one could not walk or talk. Imagine if your loved one, like Russell, was so medically fragile that you could not provide the level of care he needed to live at home. How you would feel if you had to entrust his care to others to provide a home and his daily support?

And now suppose you found Richmond, an organization that can provide your child with the highest level of personal and medical care he needs… and that you could, at last, fall asleep at night knowing that he is safe, happy and well cared for.

Richmond Community Services has a dedicated staff that supports hundreds of families like the Vogelspergers. Together, we create the healthiest and most meaningful life possible for their loved ones. Activities like music, dance and art therapy, swimming and summer camp help individuals with significant intellectual and physical disabilities not only enjoy life, but also reach their fullest potential. Richmond relies on charitable contributions to maintain the high quality of supports and innovative programs that distinguish us from other organizations.

Our Tribute Giving Program allows you to make a donation in honor of someone special, recognize an event, or commemorate someone who has passed away. Your gift, no matter how big or small, will help Richmond continue to support people with developmental disabilities and provide families with a priceless gift- – peace of mind. Please give as generously as you can.

A Tribute Gift is a meaningful way for friends and family to honor someone special, recognize a significant achievement, celebrate a special day or memorialize someone who has passed away.

Your friends and family members will know they are in your thoughts. For the families of the people we serve, a Tribute Gift is an excellent way to show how much you appreciate a member of the staff – perhaps someone who has gone that extra mile.

Whenever you make a Tribute Contribution, we will send a letter of acknowledgement to the designated individual informing the person of your gift. The amount will never be divulged unless you request us to do so. You will also receive a thank you letter in the amount of your gift for your records.

Make your gift in honor of or in memory of someone special.
