Established in 1999, the Richmond Public Relations Foundation, the 501 (c) (3) charitable arm of PRSA Richmond, was created to enhance the field of public relations in Central Virginia. The Foundation administers the David P. Hurdle and William Dietrick Memorial Scholarships and annually awards the two $1,000 scholarships to college juniors and seniors in Central Virginia who plan to pursue a career in public relations. This yearís recipients, both students at VCU, received their awards at the November chapter luncheon.
Foundation donations also are used to support professional development needs of chapter members by supporting PRSA Richmond members who successfully complete their Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), a mark of qualification, distinction and ethical practice in the public relations industry.
