Donating is easy
You can make a one-time donation or arrange for a payroll deduction, so that your giving continues throughout the year. As little as a dollar per pay period translates into meaningful support over time.
You choose where your money goes
On the campaign portal, https://uwriweb.org/RIstate, you can search the database for your favorite charity. There’s even a write-in option.
You can also choose to donate to one of five ready-made funds:
United Way’s Community Impact Fund: The Community Impact Fund supports UWRI’s mission uniting our community and resources to build racial equity and opportunities for all Rhode Islanders.
Fund for Basic Needs: Gifts to Basic Needs provide people with help in a temporary crisis, as well as fund programs that provide them the long-term stability to get back on track.
Fund for United Way 211 in Rhode Island: 211 is Rhode Island’s 24/7 helpline, connecting Rhode Islanders with basic needs like food and housing, access to healthcare, and other services.
Fund for Education for All: The Fund for Education for All supports early childhood education, afterschool programs, and summer programs, as well as financial literacy and job skill development programs.
Fund for Women United: UWRI’s Women United brings women together through philanthropy, volunteerism, and community leadership to help close the gaps in childhood literacy.
Support your community
Many residents, businesses, and agencies are still reeling from the impact of the pandemic on Rhode Island. Donating now not only provides help when it is most needed, but it also feels great to give back.
