Raise money via 401Gives

 

We want to help your nonprofit raise more money

In April 2023, 546 nonprofit partners raised nearly $3.5 million from over 15,257 donors in one day! You can be one of the nonprofits and join in the fun!

Our goal is to build nonprofit resiliency

401Gives was launched to strengthen Rhode Island's nonprofit community. For details on last year's success, see the 401Gives 2023 Community Report here.

Our strategic goals include both increasing the number of Rhode Island nonprofits in stable financial conditions and increasing the amount of Rhode Island households that contribute to charities. (Read more about our focus on expanding philanthropy here.)
