Chevron Community Benefit Funding Applications for Second Quarter Available from May 4th to May 30th, 2009

The City of Richmond and the Chevron Products Company executed a Community Benefits Agreement (Agreement) on July 31, 2008.

The Community Benefits Agreement creates a Richmond Community Fund that, beginning in 2009, receives $1,000,000 annually for 10 years to fund non-profits and community programs.  The Agreement requires the establishment of a seven-member Richmond Community Fund Advisory Committee (Committee) to act as advisors and provide financial and program oversight. The Committee is comprised of three City Council members, two Chevron-appointed representatives, and two community members.  These members serve 4 year terms.

Council members Nathaniel Bates, Ludmryna Lopez, and Jeff Ritterman will represent the Richmond City Council.  Mike Doyle, Chevron Refinery Manager and Dean O’Hair, Chevron External Affairs Manager will serve as Chevron representatives. The Community representatives are John Genser and Cynthia McKelvy.
