Richland Gives, a day of giving to the area’s non-profit organizations and hosted by the Richland County Foundation, is taking place this Tuesday. The local event coincides with the international day of giving, Giving Tuesday.
Richland Gives is designed to encourage people to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving platform/website. The Foundation sponsors the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.
The day of giving will allow local organizations to raise funds and awareness as well as cultivate new donors and reinvigorate lapsed donors. 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.
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 raised from online donations, including:
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.
