Since its inception, the annual Richmond Theater Critics Circle Awards event has raised money for the Theatre Artists Fund of Greater Richmond. Administered by the Community Foundation, this fund was created to assist members of the theater community in times of extreme need. Whether from illness (life threatening or otherwise), injury, or other extenuating circumstances or life-altering situations, members of the theater community may apply for financial aid, and others may also apply on someones behalf.
As of 2019, the RTCC awards have contributed more than $72,000 to the fund.
