Program areas at The Rhode Island Foundation

Strategic grantmaking programs: grantmaking focused primarily on addressing specific priorities within three strategic initiative areas: economic security, education, and health. Grantmaking also supports organizations and projects that are responsive to Community needs in other areas including arts & culture, environment, children & families, and housing. Grants support different approaches including 1) policy, advocacy and systems reform: funding projects that involve research and analysis on pressing issues; advocacy and organizing that gives voice to underrepresented groups and promotes institutional change 2) organizational and leadership capacity: funding projects to increase nonprofit capacity and 3) innovative models and proven programs: funding projects based on unique research or experience in a field. We also seek to expand and sustain programs that are highly effective and produce results. We also operate multiple special grant programs that fund projects that best match donor intent.
Donor advised funds: providing vehicles for donors to make grants to qualified charities by actively participating in grant recommendations.
Donor designated funds: providing vehicles for donors to make grants to qualified charities by designating a qualified charity.
