Passion Into Action
Rita Mansour is passionate about philanthropy and community engagement. Rita takes that passion and puts it into action in Northwest Ohio and around the globe.
Rita Mansour is the Founder and Director of Mansour Wealth Management at McDonald Partners LLC in Toledo, Ohio. Fluent in three languages (English, French and Arabic), Rita is skilled in leadership, fundraising, capital campaigns, business planning, financial analysis and more.
Growing up, Rita Mansour always believed in the importance of making a difference in this world. She believes each of us has a duty to our community; and she fulfills that duty and more! Rita is a volunteer Board Member of several organizations including the Toledo Museum of Art, Connect Toledo and the Advisory Council of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Rita is an Honorary Board Member of the Arts Commission. Rita was a founding member of Chicks for Charity, an organization of 1500 women/girls committed to making a difference in their community…one kind act at a time. Rita Mansour has also served as the co-chair of Momentum, a three-day regional celebration of the arts and cultural assets of the surrounding communities.
One of Rita Mansour’s proudest accomplishments was brainstorming and bringing to life the idea to raise $1 million in one night for three very worthy organizations. After first being told it was an impossible idea, she and her team went ahead and turned her crazy idea into reality.
As a result, Rita was awarded the 2020 Jefferson Award for Public Service. This national award is meant to honor those going above and beyond to support their communities. Other finalists were Leon Forystek, Nicole Khoury, and John Sayre. Mansour went on to represent Northwest Ohio in Washington, D.C., later that year.
Once or twice a year, Mansour joins her sister and a larger team to go to refugee camps and give the gift of hearing. This is so important to Rita because she knows when children can’t hear, for whatever reason, they tend to be left behind when it comes to education. Being a child of immigrants herself, she has a place in her heart for the less fortunate kids.
Rita says she grew up with parents who instilled in her the importance and significance of giving back locally and globally. Specifically, her passions include the arts, health and education.
