Horizons works with Corporate and Foundation Donors & Partners

Horizons Hampton Roads only thrives with the support of both Corporate and Foundation grants.  Funding to support quality programming, as well as community service projects, come together to make our life transforming program possible.  In 2014 & 2016, Horizons Hampton Roads received $10,000 from Cox Charities to grow our summer programs, leading to improved educational outcomes for children living in poverty.  In 2017, Whole Foods Market dedicated a percentage of shopping profits and donated $6,609.45 in honor of our number one inspiring nonprofit award from Coastal Virginia Magazine. In 2019, we received $25,000 from both Bank of America and Norfolk Southern to support summer reading and enrichment opportunities for over 400 students enrolled in our 2019 program.

In 2014, Horizons Hampton Roads partnered with Amerigroup to bring a safe, new playground to our Portsmouth site located at Portsmouth Regional Catholic School.  Every summer, Horizons Hampton Roads must be inspected and compliant with the VA Department of Social Services.  Having a safe, well maintained playground for our students is important and a part of their summer learning adventures.


Public and Private School Partnerships

Horizons Hampton Roads is very grateful for the strong partnerships we have with our city public schools as well as our 3 local independent schools who generously house the Horizons program during our 6-week summer sessions. Huge Horizons Thank You to Norfolk Collegiate School, Chesapeake Bay Academy and Portsmouth Regional Catholic School.

Local Community Organization Partnerships

Horizons Hampton Roads is proud to partner with a number of community organizations who compliment and enrich our mission to combat the Achievement Gap in our region. Every summer, some of our community partners include the Portsmouth YMCATown Center Blind Lions Club, ACCESS College Foundation, Bank of America, Elizabeth River Crossings, Virginia Wesleyan College, Chrysler Museum of ArtSlover Library, Sail Nauticus, TCC and many others.

We are grateful for the incredible support garnered by the greater Hampton Roads Community.  With continued support, we plan to expand the Portsmouth program through the eight grade, and expand the year round learning opportunities for students in all cities that we serve.  The diverse group of partners who join us in our mission, furthers the success of the Horizons program.  

Each partnership brings new ideas and opportunities.
Each dollar brings us one step closer to helping a child fulfill his potential.
Each student’s future is made brighter.
