Robins Circle

In 1969, the Robins family made a gift that changed the trajectory of our University. That gift, unprecedented at its time, challenged others to invest in Richmond’s future.

Launched in January 2019, the Robins Circle honors steadfast donors who continue that important tradition of giving. Through this recognition group, we proudly acknowledge those who have given to the University over three or more consecutive fiscal years, regardless of the amount of their giving.

Loyal support is the cornerstone of our institution’s success. Consistent annual gifts have a profound impact on the lives of countless Spiders and enable them to pursue opportunities to learn, grow, and prepare for lives of purpose. Robins Circle members understand that gifts to the University each year, and at all levels, help fund the University’s ambitious agenda. 

We look forward to welcoming new members into this group every year. As President Emeritus Ronald Crutcher wrote about the Robins family gift, "the strongest path for the University’s future is the one we walk together."
