The Foundation’s 2016 results have positioned us well as we begin our second century.
The celebration of the Foundation’s centennial in 2016 offered us a time to reflect on our past, celebrate in the present, and solidify our position as a stable, proactive community and philanthropic leader for our state.
We received nearly $60 million from generous donors, including the historic Frederick B. Wilcox Endowment Fund gift, and we distributed a record amount in grants to the community, more than $45 million. We are truly appreciative of our donors who make our work possible and our grantees who make it real.
As we embark on our second century we will continue to look to you to challenge us, to invest with us, and to be a part of building, sustaining, and growing a civic-minded, civil, charitable Rhode Island.
