The Fund for Community Progress

Annual Workplace Giving Campaign

Kicks off on October 9, 2014

 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

Steve and shirt

Steven’s counselor in middle school suggested that he check out RiverzEdge. “I was really lazy and I wasn’t planning on college.”  But in the ScreenWorks studio, Steve got into the technical part, especially the digital tools. RiverzEdge got on him when his grades were falling and he brought them up. Now he’s headed to Full Sail University for art.
