Donate and help build a Rhode Island that is welcoming.

Our communities are strongest when everyone who lives in them feels welcome.
We depend on donations from generous people like you who care about Rhode Island and want to see that people from all backgrounds are welcomed as neighbors and treated with respect.  Help us uphold Rhode Island’s welcoming tradition by making a gift today. Without you, we could not do this work.

Your donation:

  • Helps leaders around the state transform their towns and cities into Welcoming communities.
  • Changes the messages people hear about immigrants and refugees, such as through transit ads and poster campaigns
  • Helps U.S.-born and immigrant/refugee community members meet and learn about each other’s values and cultures.
