2022-23 Annual Report: Showing Up for Our Community

With our 2022-23 Annual Report, we were presented with a challenge: how do you follow up a major milestone? Last year, we marked RCRG's 50th Anniversary. This year, however, wasn't defined by a singular achievement. It was, for lack of a better word, normal. But here's the thing: at RCRG, there's profound impact in the ordinary. Every day, there are moments we know we've made a difference. This year, we're highlighting the steady, persistent work of Showing Up for Our Community, and celebrating the meaningful moments that cover the distance between milestones.

2021-22 Annual Report: 50 Years of Connecting People and Services

In 2022, RCRG celebrates 50 Years of Connecting People and Services. As always, our annual report looks back on our accomplishments over the past 12 months. This time, though, we also cover key memories and milestones from the past five decades, and reflect on how far we've come. Our organization has never stayed still. We've changed offices and changed names, introduced new programs and modified old ones, all so we can better serve our community. We don't know what the future holds, but we know that our journey is just beginning. Here's to the next 50 years!

2020-21 Annual Report: Closed Doors, Open Hearts

In our 2020-21 Annual Report, the COVID-19 pandemic provides context and background, but it isn't the story. The story, in fact, is everything that happened in spite of the pandemic. The theme - Closed Doors, Open Hearts - is a reflection of our agency's response and resilience. We took significant measures to keep our clients, volunteers, and staff members safe. But we also adapted at every opportunity, modifying our programs and services so we could continue meeting the needs of Richmond residents. It's a year we'll never forget - one where we grew stronger as an organization, while deepening our ties to the community.

2019-20 Annual Report: In This Together

Welcome to RCRG's 2019-20 Annual Report! It is, as always, a reflection of the past 12 months - our successes, memorable moments, and key milestones. This year, though, the context is different, as much of the report is framed by COVID-19, and how our organization responded. As such, we chose the same theme that provided so much comfort and hope during the pandemic. You know it by heart, and you know it's true: We're All In This Together.

2018-19 Annual Report: Evergreen

As RCRG approaches its 50th anniversary, we found ourselves thinking about the organization's continued - and growing - relevance to the Richmond community.

From our Information & Volunteer Centre, to the Richmond Christmas Fund, to our Seniors Community Support Services, our work remains vital and valuable, benefiting thousands of Richmond residents every year.

2017-18 Annual Report: Adding Value to Our Community

For our 2017-18 Annual Report, we wanted to focus on a simple question: how does RCRG add value to the community? We do it every day, in countless ways. Sometimes, by connecting Richmond residents to meaningful volunteer opportunities. Other times, by helping parents find quality child care, or delivering fresh groceries to seniors. Through statistics and stories, we look back on another amazing year, and how, in ways big and small, we added value to our community.

2016-17 Annual Report: Remembering Our Roots

After several years of rapid change - a new name, a new logo, a new website - we decided that, in 2016-17, we'd take some time to remember our roots. And those roots run deep: RCRG has a proud, 45-year history in Richmond, one that we wanted to celebrate, while still highlighting our most recent accomplishments. In reading this year's Annual Report, you'll get a sense of the progress we've made. Trust us, though: the best is yet to come.

2015-16 Annual Report: Building Blocks

2015-16 was our first full year as RCRG. It was also the year we launched this website. Plus, many of our programs - from the Christmas Fund to Neighbourhood Small Grants - took major steps forward. For our Annual Report, we went with the theme of 'Building Blocks,' to signify the progress we made as an organization, and the contributions we made to the community.
