An Endowment:
A Permanent Source of Support

A restored building.
The Cranston Historical Society established an endowment at the Foundation in 2013 to help it protect, preserve, and promote Cranston's history.

Approximately 150 nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island -- such as Herreshoff Marine Museum, Blackstone Valley Historical Society, and Rhode Island Meals on Wheels -- have chosen to secure all or part of their endowments at the Foundation.

These organizations have entrusted the Foundation with management of their endowments and receive regular grant distributions from their fund.

"This fund provides our donors a great opportunity to have a long-lasting impact."

- Lou Raymond, Executive Director, South County Habitat for Humanity
