Rhode Island Foundation invites Rhode Islanders to bring their ideas to the table at 1 of 6 event

From the Rhode Island Foundation to Rhode Islanders:

Bring your ideas to the table as we chart a course for the Rhode Island Foundation that is informed by what matters most to you. We do not have all the answers, resources, experience, or expertise to alone address the challenging issues we face as a state. We work best and have the most impact when we listen to, learn from, and collaborate with the community we serve.

Join us for a free meal and friendly conversation. Sharing your perspective will help to guide the Foundation’s grantmaking investments, community engagement activities, and more. We’ll meet up at six locations around the state, and our team will be there to help moderate, but you – alongside fellow Rhode Islanders – will lead the discussion.
