Thank You for Giving



xcity buddies2Where would we be without our donors? The College Crusade of Rhode Island receives critical support from a variety of foundations and corporations throughout the year. In particular, we wish to thank these funders for their recent gifts:

  • The Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee, for $75,000 in the final installment of a two-year, $150,000 grant in matching support for our GEAR UP program
  • The Rhode Island Foundation for a $75,000 grant for operating support
  • The Nellie Mae Education Foundation for $15,000 toward our ReadAbout program
  • Cox Charitable Foundation for a grant of $11,871 to support Gilbert Stuart Middle School, along with in-kind donations of public service announcements
  • Taco/The White Family Foundation for a $5,000 grant in support of our Cranston students
  • The NewportFed Charitable Foundation for $1,000 to support scholarships

Support from the wider community is vital to The College Crusade as we guide RI’s low-income urban youth to reach their potential. We are grateful to our funding partners for the investment you are making in youth.
