Foundation For Richmond County

The Foundation For Richmond County was established in 1993 by local leaders to encourage philanthropy and secure resources to address local issues. In 2014, the foundation’s local board of trustees elected to transfer its grantmaking program to the Cole Foundation, which will streamline and enhance the approach to grantmaking in Richmond County, North Carolina.

Through 2014, the Foundation For Richmond County has awarded more than $32,000 in grants to 20 nonprofit organizations, which have benefitted Richmond County residents. The Board of Trustees have been extraordinary stewards of the resources entrusted to them and is proud of their grantmaking legacy.
