This is your community foundation

For more than 100 years, the Rhode Island Foundation has been dedicated to improving the lives of Rhode Islanders. We partner with generous individuals, families, organizations, and corporations that share our commitment to the state, as well as with nonprofit organizations that provide the "boots-on-the-ground" services that make Rhode Island a better place to live, work, and play.
