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 Grants Program
We want to celebrate each of Rhode Island’s unique thirty-nine cities and towns by funding community-making projects throughout the state! Grants will be made in the range of $5,000 to $15,000 to a diverse range of projects that may include improvements to parks, streetscapes, and other public spaces; creative use of art in public spaces; and engaging programming that invites people to experience community in public spaces. We plan to make at least one gift within each of Rhode Island’s cities and towns.
To submit a proposal, please complete an online application by February 12. Decisions will be made by March.
