Making a difference in Rhode Island
You work hard for your money, so you care about how it’s spent — this includes your giving. Our Community Impact Fund is exactly what you’re looking for. Why? Because 100% of your donation goes to help Rhode Islanders; a feature made possible by a trust that covers our fundraising and administrative costs.
Many nonprofits keep a percentage of each donation to pay these costs; that could be 15%, 20%, or even more.
Not the Community Impact Fund — 100% of your gift is used to invest in the future of the Ocean State by investing in people. Your donation helps fund innovative programs that prepare Rhode Islanders for the workforce — further laying the foundation for a stronger Rhode Island.
You deserve it.
So yes, you’re cautious with your money — you have every right to be. You deserve to know that your gift is making a lasting difference… and let’s be honest, paying a nonprofit’s administrative costs is probably not the kind of difference you had in mind.
That’s why United Way of Rhode Island’s Community Impact Fund is perfect for you — 100% of your donation going exactly where you intended… not a penny less.
