Letter To The Community,

When The Fund for Community Progress was established in 1982 it changed the nature of workplace giving, and we've been leading Rhode Island in socially responsible philanthropy ever since.  The Fund raises money for non-profit organizations dedicated to the causes our donors care about, such as the environment, economic opportunity, community and social change.

Last year, The Fund had revenues of almost $350,000.  Almost 3/4 of this funding came from workplace campaigns.  We are getting ready to kick-off this years' campaign in October. With the support of hard-working Rhode Islanders, The Fund has invested over $8 million in the infrastructure of Rhode Island over the last 33 years.  This year more than 55 corporations, banks, universities, hospitals, schools and municipalities will participate in our Annual Workplace Campaign.

 

In partnership,

 

Sally Turner,  Executive Director

Maria's dreams of homeownership were thrown aside when her husband passed away leaving her to raise four children on her own.  Upon the advice of a friend she contacted NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley's HomeOwnership Center for help.  With their help, Maria closed on her new home this past March.  "After struggling for so long, I thought owning my own home was impossible but if you have a dream and work towards it, it will come true no matter what the circumstances or obstacles in your life," says Maria.
