What if we all gave on the same day?
By Maura TeynorNovember 15, 2016
That day is November 29.
Richland Gives, an online day of giving, is set for November 29 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The day is designed to encourage everyone to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving platform/website. The Richland County Foundation is hosting the day to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger.
The success of Richland Gives will depend on our collective enthusiasm and implementation.
The day of giving will allow Richland County nonprofit organizations to raise funds and awareness as well as cultivate new donors and reinvigorate lapsed donors.
Richland Gives 2016 will offer incentives to inspire donors and organizations to participate in the excitement. Thanks to the generosity of donors at the Richland County Foundation, incentives will be awarded as grants to participating organizations, beyond what they raise from online donations.
~A $1,000 grant to the first 40 nonprofit organizations that raise at least $1,000 online via the Richland Gives website through November 29, 2016 at 7 p.m.
~A $500 grant to the first 10 organizations that increase Richland Gives online donations by 30% compared to 2015. To be eligible, a nonprofit must have raised at least $500 in 2015 during Richland Gives to participate in this grant offering.
In addition grants will be awarded to the nonprofits that raise the most during the day.
Encourage everyone to visit richlandgives.org, donations can be pre-scheduled through November 29 at 7 p.m.
