In a social media post on Tuesday evening, the Richland County Foundation reflected on the annual Richland Gives day, noting “Well, it wasn’t the typical #RichlandGives day and watch party evening; however, our community once again came through with over $350,000 of donations from 950 donors. Thank you!

A review of the results as of the time of this post reflected that the annual campaign netted $356,820 from 950 donors, and that the top five area non-profit organizations in terms of receipts included Discovery School ($17,745 from 56 donors); Renaissance Performing Arts Association ($17,060 from 59 donors); Ohio Bird Sanctuary ($16,648 from 112 donors); The Friendly House ($14,025 from 77 donors); and the Lucas Community Center ($13,495 from 36 donors).

“Golden Ticket” winners for the highest amounts in a given period included the Lucas Commuity Center, Kingwood Center Gardens, Richland Academy of the Arts, Boy Scouts of America – Buckeye Council, and The Salvation Army – Mansfield, and those for the most unique donors included Altrusa International of Mansfield, Discovery School, Visual Bucket List Foundation, and the Renaissance Performing Arts Association.
