Giving Changes Everything, Fall 2021
At the Foundation, we've remained focused on COVID-19 response efforts - and we'll continue to do so for as long as necessary. At the same time, we remain committed to providing core support to the community through our grantmaking, civic leadership, and fundraising efforts.
In this issue, you’ll read about a donor who hopes to jump start lasting support for state parks, and about a handful of the community organizations who led the way in our efforts to count as many Rhode Islanders as possible in the 2020 Census. You’ll also come to understand more about the connection between improving community health and reforming the criminal justice system. There’s an inspiring update on the original six Carter Roger Williams Scholarship recipients, some words of wisdom from a dedicated Civic Leadership Fund donor, and we’ll introduce you to a dynamic mother-daughter team of professional advisors.
