“For almost ten years, The Columbus Foundation‘s 5 Nonprofits to Watch platform has been honored to amplify the mission of nonprofit organizations that embody the pulse and essence of Columbus,” said Danielle Tong, Director, Capacity Building & Community Knowledge at The Columbus Foundation. “In recent years, the Foundation’s intentional focus on elevating smaller, lesser known organizations brings with it the acknowledgement of the tremendous value that small nonprofits bring to our city.”
This year’s 5 Nonprofits to Watch are: Black Girl Rising, Inc., Elevate Northland, Form5 Prosthetics, Remember Us Urban Scouts, and Riverview International Center.
Riverview International Center (RIC) empowers New Americans by supporting individuals, strengthening families, and nurturing community. The RIC provides numerous essential services and programs.
