Centennial Gift: A $10 Million Campaign to Restore and Preserve Roger Williams Park
In honor of our centennial, we are leading a $10 million campaign to preserve and enhance one of Rhode Island’s most treasured spaces, Roger Williams Park.
Comprised of over 435 beautiful acres, offering a range of recreational and educational opportunities, representing Rhode Island's rich history and the diversity of our people, the People's Park has attracted generation after generation of Rhode Islanders for over 100 years. There is great opportunity at Roger Williams Park to expand programming, improve infrastructure, and steward the Park for generations to come.

Centennial Community Grants Program
We are celebrating our Centennial by funding projects that will bring life to Rhode Island's remarkable communities. We have awarded $500,000 in grants to fund community-building activities in every city and town.
Grants up to $15,000 were granted to nonprofit organizations, municipal governments, and community agencies to fund efforts that will build bikes lanes, design walking tours, plant community gardens, install historical markers and monuments, and more. All the work that is being funded is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
