The Robins Foundation is a private, family foundation located in Richmond Virginia. Established in 1957, the Foundation was a vehicle for E. Claiborne Robins, Sr., Robins and his wife, Lora M. Robins, and their lifelong dedication to making Richmond a better place. The couple’s philanthropy reflected a love for the community and family as they built the A.H. Robins Company. They believed in giving back to their community, and were tirelessly involved in its transformation.

The Foundation has long been considered a community funder, and has shifted towards participating as a community member. To better align with our mission statement and values, Robins Foundation partners and engages with community players working to accomplish the same goals. Our vision is for community building, and working to create a stronger Greater Richmond region for all of us.
