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.
Richland Gives is designed to encourage people to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving website. The Richland County Foundation hosts the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected revenue streams for many local charities.
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.
Thanks to the generosity of donors at the Richland County Foundation, $34,000 in incentives will be awarded as grants to participating organizations, beyond what they raise from online donations.
A $1,000 grant will to the first 15 nonprofit organizations that raise at least $1,000 online via the Richland Gives website beginning Nov. 16 at 7 a.m. Additional prize grants will be awarded to the nonprofits during Richland Gives.
