Community Grants are going strong
In just three years, our Community Grants program has funded more than $1.1 million for projects that are benefiting residents in each of our state’s 39 cities and towns.
As part of our centennial celebration in 2016, we created the Community Grants program—a way for donors and nonprofits to foster community-building projects around Rhode Island. In just three years this program has funded more than $1.1 million for projects from Woonsocket to Westerly and from Burrillville to Barrington, benefitting residents in each of our state’s 39 cities and towns.
In announcing the 2018 community grants, Foundation President and CEO Neil D. Steinberg stated, “Our grants will produce places to gather, create friendships, and inspire new collaborations that will build community connections all over our state. Initiatives like this are only possible due to the vision of those who came before us, the donors who generously invest in Rhode Island and the nonprofits that convert those resources into action.”
