In an era where community strength is more vital than ever, Richland County annually sets an inspiring example of unity and philanthropy. Today through November 28, the Richland County Foundation will culminate its annual Richland Gives event, a powerful testament to the spirit of giving that thrives in the heart of Ohio.

A Tradition of Philanthropy

Established in 1945, the Richland County Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that embodies the essence of community solidarity, pooling together individual gifts for the long-term benefit of the county and its people. The foundation’s dedication to wise investment of charitable donations ensures that grants are continually distributed to enhance the quality of life across Richland County.

The Power of One Platform

Richland Gives, initiated in 2015, is more than just a fundraising event; it’s a movement that galvanizes the entire community. With a focus on local nonprofits, this online giving event, starting at 7:00 AM this morning and culminating on November 28 at 7:00 PM, creates a single platform for collective action. It’s a day when everyone, regardless of their background or means, can contribute to causes they hold dear and support the vital work of local nonprofits.

Since its inception, Richland Gives has been a catalyst for change, raising close to $2.5 million. This remarkable achievement underscores the community’s commitment to philanthropy and the enduring impact of collective action. The 2023 event promises to be even more impactful, with 100 local charities poised to benefit from this grand day of giving.

Incentives Fuel the Spirit of Giving

In an extraordinary display of generosity, the Richland County Foundation has allocated $80,000 in incentives to be awarded as grants to participating organizations, in addition to what they raise through online donations. This significant boost not only amplifies the event’s impact but also encourages more donors to participate, knowing that their contributions will be further augmented.
