Grants to Rhode Island community-based organizations to support the state's Black community. Funding is intended to benefit urban Black youth, low-income Black individuals, and Black students, as well as for cultural preservation and the promotion of the achievements and history of the Rhode Island Black community.

The fund gives priority to equity, education, social justice, and economic empowerment of the Black community in three core areas:

  1. Grants to community-based organizations that strive to uplift low-income Black Rhode Islanders. The programs should target financial stability, economic empowerment, and structural inequities. Programs can also support and promote the history and achievements of Blacks in Rhode Island and preserve the culture of the Black community. Priority will be given to organizations that primarily serve the Black community and are Black led.
  2. Grants to Black, community-based organizations that provide youth development and mentoring opportunities to Black youth. The programs should target educational success, avoidance of risk behaviors, and empowerment to make positive decisions and achieve higher aspirations. Youth should be supported in growth and engagement in productive interpersonal relationships to positively impact the Black community. Priority will be given to organizations that primarily serve the Black community and are Black led.
  3. Scholarship assistance for Black students who are pursuing or advancing a career in healthcare. For more information or to apply for this scholarship, please visit the foundation's scholarship directory.
