What is #RichlandGives?
It is the local online giving event. It is designed to encourage everyone to contribute to local nonprofits they care about through a single giving platform/website. The Foundation hosts Richland Gives to build capacity, grow philanthropy and make the community stronger. It coincides with the international day of giving, #GivingTuesday.
The #RichlandGives website is available to accept your gifts year-round.
