The value of partnerships

We do our work in partnership with generous donors, committed “boots on the ground” nonprofit organizations, and passionate stakeholders and leaders in the community. Through these partnerships, as well as through civic leadership and both fundraising and grantmaking activities, the Foundation is helping Rhode Island reach its true potential.
