Rhode Island Fdn. Announces Black Philanthropy Initiative

From the Rhode Island Foundation:

Join us February 10 for the public launch of the Black Philanthropy Initiative, a field of interest fund at the Rhode Island Foundation.

The mission of the Black Philanthropy Initiative is to advance equity and social justice for Blacks in Rhode Island. BPI is a permanently endowed fund that engages Black Rhode Islanders and other interested Rhode Islanders as active philanthropists to address challenges in the Black community. Through strategic grantmaking, BPI will support organizations and initiatives that:

  • Measurably improve the status of Blacks in Rhode Island
  • Pursue equality, opportunity, and prosperity in the economic, cultural, social, educational, health, and public policy spheres; and
  • Galvanize Black Leadership, nurture public/private partnerships, and leverage additional community resources
