We are honored to have been recognized last evening with the President’s Award from the American Planning Association, Rhode Island Chapter, and wish to congratulate all of the evening’s awardees.

In announcing the President’s Award, Chapter President Nathan Kelly stated, “The Foundation has been either leading or participating in community conversations across the state in a manner that is very strategic. Using the platform of economic security, educational success, and healthy lives, their staff members have looked for spaces where their resources and expertise might serve as a catalyst for building better communities. The results of this commitment include the development of ground-breaking initiatives, leadership in pivotal community discussions, and dedication of significant resources into bold efforts.”

He noted the Foundation’s Centennial Community Grants Program, our support of job training and placement programs, and the Roger Williams Park Campaign, among other Foundation projects.

As I have said before, our work would not be possible without the generous donors who invest in Rhode Island through the Foundation and the dedicated staff at our state’s nonprofits who do the critical “boots on the ground” work.

I am pleased to share our most recent honor with you who made it possible. Thank you!
