We Thank You for Your Support



The College Crusade is truly grateful to The Rhode Island Foundation for a $150,000 grant to support our operational needs, which is critical to maintaining the quality and scope of our work while continuing to enhance the supports we provide for our students. We are also very thankful to the Angell Foundation for a two-year grant of $150,000 total, to support our college transition and persistence initiatives.

Many thanks to the Nellie Mae Education Foundation for a grant of $38,635 to support our ReadAbout, SAT Preparation, and STEM programs. Thank you also to Textron for a gift of $15,000 which provides vital matching support for our Rhode Island GEAR UP program. We are grateful to Cox Charities for their grant of $13,000 supporting STEM programs and after school youth development. Thank you also to the Bank of America Charitable Foundation for their operating grant of $10,000 and to the Providence Journal Charitable Legacy Fund for a gift of $10,000 providing RI GEAR UP matching funds.

We are delighted to thank the Rhode Island Rose Award Fund for a donation of $6,300 to support both our middle school reading program and our Alumni Emergency Fund, which assists undergraduate Crusaders with small one-time expenses, such as an unexpected car repair, a bus pass, or a book purchase, so they can stay on track with their studies. We would also like to thank The Yelp Foundation for a $5,000 award given through its 2016 Giving Local contest, which was used to support our Alumni Emergency Fund. Thank you also to Weybosset Research & Management, LLC for a gift of $5,000 and to the Fascitelli Family Foundation for a gift of $5,000. In addition, we would like to thank the Harry M., Miriam C. & William C. Horton Fund for their $5,000 grant supporting our Rhode Island GEAR UP program. We are very grateful for your support!
