ICGR's Statement of Purpose is simple and straightforward: "to develop understanding, respect and cooperation among the various religious faiths." Our goal is that we can create a safe and comfortable environment in which people in the Greater Richmond area can discuss their faith and learn about others. From this we will develop deeper levels of understanding and respect for one another, and with this foundation we can come together as a unified force to serve our community. Our organization is a tree at the center of our community, its roots winding deep, holding strong, no matter where they run. From this immense and sturdy foundation, we within the community grow together, tough and unified, so that we can branch out and give back to Richmond, as leaves purify the air. With this event and this fundraiser, ICGR will have the ability not only to strengthen our roots by meeting and connecting with new people and organizations in our community, but we will also gain the ability to give more and more to our community. The funds we will raise through this event will strengthen ICGR and will strengthen our community. We are one. The work ICGR does - its programs, events, and fundraisers - are all done for Richmond. To serve the people we love.
