  • Golden Ticket hours on November 28, 2017.  Award $500 to the nonprofit which raises the most money during a specified hour.

Richland Gives, an online day of giving, is set for November 28 through 7 p.m. Starting November 1, Richland Gives donors will be able to make their online donations early and they will still count toward the giving day totals for each nonprofit. Donors are also encouraged to give on November 28 because prize grants will be awarded to nonprofits that win particular giving day contests.    

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 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 registration is open until October 31. It is free for Richland County-based nonprofit organizations at
