More than a day. It's a movement.

Join us in 2021

April 1, 2020, was an important day for Rhode Island. Nonprofits from across the state participated in the first 401Gives, Rhode Island's largest statewide day of giving.

In just 24 hours, 7,097 Rhode Islanders donated more than $1.1 million to support 364 local nonprofits.

Now what? Well, that's easy, we start getting ready for next year's 401Gives. Soon, we'll begin planning for April 1, 2021. Until then, remember that Rhode Island is stronger because you helped make 401Gives more than just a day... you helped make it a movement.

If you'd like to be included in the next 401Gives as a nonprofit or sponsor, please contact 401gives@uwri.org

It's more than a day. It's a movement.
