Richland Gives event at Idea Works

People celebrate as nonprofits raise money for operating expenses during the 2019 Richland Gives event.

MANSFIELD – Richland Gives registration for Richland County based nonprofit organizations is open through Oct. 31. It is free; however, nonprofit organizations must register each year.

This is the seventh year for Richland Gives which is hosted by the Richland County Foundation. Since its inception in 2015, Richland Gives has raised $1,435,869. Thanks to the generosity of donors at the Foundation, $100,000 in incentives will be awarded as grants to participating organizations, beyond what they raise from online donations.

Richland Gives is designed to encourage people to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving website. The Foundation hosts the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.

Each organization will have an individualized web page to promote their cause. The success of the event will depend on our collective enthusiasm and implementation.

Leading up to the event the Foundation provides an online toolkit, webinars, mass media and social media coverage to make it easier for nonprofit organizations to participate.

The donation period is from Nov. 15 at 7 a.m. through Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. For more details or to donate go to richlandgives.org.
