Downtown Richmond is the heart of the region, home to some of the city’s most amazing restaurants, creative businesses, unique retailers, small businesses, performance venues and art galleries. Downtown’s streets have witnessed history in years past and present. And, while many of the region’s businesses continue to invest in the efforts of Venture Richmond, we stay encouraged by the contributions of the general public and invite you to participate, too!

We encourage people to think of downtown as a place to live, work and play. We invite people to enjoy activities along our riverfront, establish their businesses downtown, or choose the apartments, condos and historic structures to call home.

Venture Richmond is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our programs are designed to engage business and community leaders in partnering with the City to enhance the vitality of our community, particularly downtown, through economic development, marketing, promotion, advocacy, and events.

Your donation is tax deductible and will support the enhanced services we provide to the 440-square-blocks of downtown including, but not limited to, free community events, beautification efforts along downtown’s riverfront and gateway corridors, the Clean, Safe and Green program, downtown banners, and the continued promotion and marketing of downtown businesses.
