About the Richland County Foundation
The Richland County Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated in 1945. It was founded by local citizens dedicated to serving the public good in our community.
Richland County Foundation is the one of the largest community foundations in the state of Ohio and the largest private source of grants in Richland County. Grants are awarded for a broad range of community needs as well as college scholarships to undergraduate students.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of trustees.
They are a diverse group of leaders dedicated to the mission of the Foundation. Throughout our long history we have earned a reputation for accountability; prudent, diversified investment of donors’ gifts; community knowledge; and a professional staff.
Helping donors serve the community
Our goal is to assist donors to meet their charitable goals with administrative
and grantmaking services that achieve the greatest impact. The typical Richland Foundation donor has diverse interests – but almost always is passionate about his or her commitment to this community.
Our office is located in downtown Mansfield at 24 West Third Street near the library. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
