181 South Main Street is the New Home of the Foundation
Twenty-six years since the Foundation's Board of Trustees began exploring the possibilities of a stand-alone location, I am excited to announce we are now open for business at our new home at 181 South Main Street.
Through the generosity of a donor with a passion for historic building preservation, the Foundation received the property as a gift in December 2012 along with monetary support to build a boardroom addition and renovate the existing house.
While the new location provides increased exposure of the presence of a community foundation in Richland County, the decision to relocate was rooted in the Foundation's mission statement and strategic plan:
Create a positive first impression to visitors entering Mansfield.
Be a leader in the transformation of a declining neighborhood.
And most importantly, demonstrate the Foundation's commitment to its slogan:
For Good. For Ever.
Brady Groves, President of the Richland County Foundation
