IRVINGTON—River Counties Community Foundation (RCCF) will be at the Irvington Farmers Market on Saturday, October 7, offering a chance to recommend a local nonprofit to receive a $500 grant.
Visitors to RCCF’s tent can enter the drawing by simply registering, reported board chairman Bill Vose. One entry will be selected at 11:30 a.m. The Irvington Market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
RCCF’s most important role is handling the charitable legacies established by more the 70 fundholders from this area, said Vose. Charitable giving in 2016 was nearly $800,000 in Lancaster, Middlesex and Northumberland counties.
Established in 1996, RCCF, an affiliate of The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia, stewards charitable endowments for donors, partners with nonprofits through grantmaking and provides leadership on community issues.
