The state’s leading companies, nonprofits and unions

The state’s leading companies, nonprofits, and unions invest in United Way of Rhode Island to make ours a community where every individual in each community has equal opportunity for justice and prosperity.

We’re proud to partner with companies and organizations across the state in support of our mission and their social responsibility focus.

Most complement their giving with a workplace giving program. Many also work with our Volunteer Center of Rhode Island to engage employees in meaningful team-building activities. Others work with us to craft comprehensive corporate social responsibility programs.
