Through the Joyner Fine Properties Maple office, The Joyner Foundation recently donated $1500 to Podium RVA, an organization whose mission is to empower excellence in RVA teens through writing.
Podium RVA is a literary arts program that inspires middle and high schoolers in Richmond public schools to become confident and capable writers with the skills necessary to succeed in citizenship, college and career. 83% of Podium high schoolers use writing to reduce stress, 100% of participating juniors and seniors pass their writing SOL test, and 100% create a plan for post-graduation.
“We’re extremely appreciative of the support provided by the Joyner Foundation,” said Lindy Bumgarner, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Podium RVA. “We will use the donation to continue our after-school and mentorship programs that are so important to our students.”
The Joyner Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization of Joyner Fine Properties, whose mission is to support both local schools and classrooms and affordable housing opportunities in our community through grants and donations. In the first year, the Joyner Foundation made Richmond’s list of Top Corporate Donors at Bizsense Generosity Inc.
