WHAT IS Richland Gives?

Richland Gives is a 12-hour day of giving that encourages everyone to contribute to Richland County’s nonprofits through an online giving platform.

Richland Gives will take place on December 1, 2015 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.


  • The median nonprofit organization raises less than 1% of its funds online – even though it is far cheaper than other fundraising methods.


  • Get in front of more supporters. Richland Gives search function will help nonprofits of all sizes reach thousands of new potential donors.
  • Reduce fundraising costs. Raising $1 online costs 7 cents, as opposed to 20 cents for grant writing or up to $1.25 to acquire new donors through direct mail.
  • Increase giving. Fun and compelling campaigns will engage new givers and inspire current givers to donate even more.
