Strategic Initiatives

All Rhode Island households should be financially stable. All students should graduate from high school career or college ready. All Rhode Islanders should have access to better health care at lower costs. Explore our strategies for achieving these bold goals.

Across all three of the Foundation's strategic initiatives - Economic Security, Educational Success, and Healthy Lives - we are focused on:

  • The places where the three intersect. True progress in one is not possible without progress in all three.
  • Statewide investment, with priority placed on investments that will break down the barriers that hold back low income Rhode Islanders and Rhode Islanders of color.
  • Supporting cultures of civic engagement and philanthropy within these three areas, and across our state. Both are proven drivers of sustainable change.
