Your gift will be DOUBLED, and we’re more than HALF way there, thanks to a generous grant from The Cameron Foundation.

Imagine a bicycle-pedestrian bridge spanning the Appomattox River, connecting the canal trail on the southbank at Ferndale / Appomattox Riverside Park in Dinwiddie County to the northbank trail at John J.

ABOUT THE CABELL FOUNDATION: Founded in 1957 by Mr. Robert G. Cabell, III, and Mrs. Maude Morgan Cabell, the Cabell Foundation was established as a private, non-operating foundation to support the permanent needs of charitable organizations throughout Virginia, with particular emphasis on agencies in the metro Richmond region. Since its inception, the Cabell Foundation has provided permanent gifts and challenge grants to a diverse mix of nonprofit institutions. Mr. and Mrs. Cabell believed the Foundation should be responsive to human need in its deliberations and in taking initiative that would inspire the community to action.  More information available at
