We all need help sometimes.

When you give to United Way of Rhode Island, you’re supporting more than a single program — you’re supporting a better Rhode Island for everyone.

With your gift, you’re investing in programs that make a difference. You help children fall in love with learning, help adults get better jobs, and provide families with basic supports such as food, housing, and heat. In addition, you help provide Rhode Islanders with one number to call during a crisis — 211.

While it’s true that your donation benefits direct service programs, it also supports our public policy team — experts who work with community leaders and elected officials to advocate for local families. Your generosity makes it possible for us to work with our partners to find solutions to troubling trends.
