Furthering our collective impact

The Foundation seeks to partner with our donors as we work to find solutions to the complex problems facing the state. Over the years, we have offered our donors the opportunity to co-fund specific grants with us. These partnerships have led to an additional $2.9 million in grants to the community. It’s proven to be a win-win-win approach. Donors get to further their philanthropic objectives by co-funding proposals that have been vetted by the Foundation’s grants staff, the Foundation gets to stretch its grant dollars further, and most importantly, more dollars flow out to the community to address critical needs.

In recent years, co-funding from generous donors has allowed us to nearly double our investments in support of basic human needs. And while these investments are about improving the community, they are also about changing the trajectory of the lives of individual Rhode Islanders. Whether providing rental assistance to help keep people in their home or providing supportive housing to move people out of homelessness, the bottom line is that when donors choose to invest with us, together we are able to help more Rhode Islanders.
