NRF Joins United Way of Rhode Island in Upcoming Statewide Giving Day

About NRF / News / NRF Joins United Way of Rhode Island in Upcoming Statewide Giving Day

This April, hundreds of Rhode Island nonprofits are participating in the first-ever statewide giving day known as #401Gives. Starting at 6:00 a.m on April 1, you can visit and make a donation to one or more of the many participating nonprofit organizations in the Rhode Island community.

What is 401Gives?

401Gives is an initiative of United Way of Rhode Island. Its purpose is to bring a collective voice to Rhode Island’s nonprofit community and deepen the state’s culture of philanthropy. At a time when everyone is feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, nonprofits rely on the support of their members, visitors and donors like you to keep their missions moving forward.

Whether you decide to make a gift to NRF on April 1, or another organization, we hope you will participate if you’re able. The Newport community needs your help during this time. Together, we can make a difference and help offset the economic impact many local nonprofits are facing.

How can you make a difference on 401Gives Day?

  • Visit and search for your organization(s) of choice – we hope you will keep us in mind as you choose from the list of participating nonprofits.
  • Check out NRF’s microsite to learn more about what we do and to make your gift, if you choose.
