Establishing a recurring gift to the Council helps sustain Rhode Island’s humanities community. With the flexibility to make your gift monthly, quarterly, or annually you can make a big difference with the commitment that’s right for your budget and philanthropic goals!
Annual gifts to the Council ensure the high-quality public humanities programming and partnerships we support throughout the state of Rhode Island. As an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities relies on donations from individuals, families, foundations, and businesses who are essential to this public-private partnership.
Want to seed, support, and strengthen a specific Council initiative or grantmaking program?
Because the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities is a 501(c)(3), we are eligible for United Way’s Open Donor Choice Program. If you give through United Way, please consider designating the Council (on your donation form) as your charity of choice.
Would you like to make sure that the Council is supported in the years beyond your lifetime? By designating the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities as a beneficiary in your will, for your qualified retirement funds (IRA, 401k, or 403b), or on your life insurance policies, your heirs can pay fewer estate taxes and you can leave a legacy too. With a legacy gift, you will continue to make a difference in the world, year after year, through the work of the Council.
The Council hosts an annual Celebration of the Humanities each October to mark National Arts & Humanities Month. Proceeds from the event support culture, history, education, and civic engagement in our state.
