The Richfield Foundation partners with non-profit and neighborhood organizations seeking to change lives for the better in Richfield. A grassroots organization that is close to the community, the Richfield Foundation works with smaller, local projects that are often overlooked by larger agencies that work on a more regional basis. The Richfield Foundation is truly in tune with the heartbeat of the Richfield community.


Foundation History

The Richfield Foundation was created in December 1988. It's an all-volunteer organization that operates with no salaries and low overhead.

Over the past 25 years, the foundation has given out nearly a quarter of a million dollars to local non-profit organizations and programs that strive to make Richfield a great place to live and work.
