MANSFIELD - Close to 70 nonprofit organizations are participating in Richland Gives this year.
Last year a community of donors contributed over $200,000 on the day of giving. Richland Gives is designed to encourage everyone to support local nonprofits they care about through a single giving platform/website. The Richland County Foundation is hosting the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.
Thanks to the generosity of donors at the Richland County Foundation, $44,000 in incentives will be awarded as grants to nonprofit organizations participating in Richland Gives, beyond what they raise from online donations.
• 1:1 matching grant of $1,000 to the first 25 nonprofit organizations that raise at least $1,000 online via the Richland Gives website.
• $500 grants to the first (5) organizations that increased online donations by 30% compared to the previous year. To be eligible, a nonprofit must have raised at least $500 the previous year.
• Six ($500) Golden Ticket hours between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
• Leader Board Winners: Small Nonprofit and Large Nonprofit Leader Boards are based on annual revenue of below or above $250,000.
Incentives will be awarded during the Nonprofit Showcase from 12-1:30 p.m. at OSU/NCSC Mansfield and the Leader Board Watch Party from 5-7 p.m. at Idea Works, 40 West Fourth Street, Mansfield.
In addition, individual nonprofit organizations can offer a matching grant on their Richland Gives page as an incentive to donors by promising donations will be matched up to a certain amount. The Mansfield Art Center has a $3,210 matching grant.
You can give to your favorite nonprofit agency at richlandgives.org.
