It was a very successful day for area non-profits on Tuesday, with donations received during Richland Gives totaling over $309,000 as of late in the evening.
Richland Gives is designed to encourage people to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving platform/website hosted by the Richland County Foundation. The Foundation sponsors the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.
The day of giving allows local organizations to raise funds and awareness as well as cultivate new donors and reinvigorate lapsed donors. The Foundation also makes incentive awards of various types throughout the day.
The money raised on Tuesday came from 861 donors. The largest dollar amount of donations came to the Lucas Community Center, which garnered $26,485 from 20 donors, closely followed by Little Buckeye Children’s Museum and the Renaissance Performing Arts Association.
