In honor of Rich Cowles' retirement June 28, the Charities Review Council is excited to kick-off of the “Make it a Rich Legacy” campaign, taking place now through June 27.

Donations made in recognition of Rich’s leadership will go to the Campaign for Growth – a $600,000 effort to build the Council’s infrastructure to be able to reach more nonprofits and donors.

Rich has championed the Campaign for Growth in order to strengthen the Council’s future programmatic and financial sustainability. This vision for the Council is a result of Rich’s deep-rooted desire to see a robust, thriving philanthropic sector that makes change happen in our communities.


Thank you to several of you who have already made contributions to the Council in honor of Rich. We are hoping to raise at least $10,000 in the next week. This would bring us to a significant milestone in which our Campaign for Growth funds would be at the level needed to begin implementing phase 1.

Please go to GiveMN.org today to “Make it a Rich Legacy”, and finally, join us next Wednesday June 27 at Mai Village from 3-6pm for an informal farewell celebration.

— Heidi Neff Christianson, Board Chair
