Become a monthly donor to the Council and help sustain Rhode Island’s humanities community. You can make a big difference with small gifts each month!
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.
The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities is thrilled to partner with the Center for the Book to enrich our community and to celebrate the art and heritage of reading, writing, making, and sharing books. With a commitment to fostering a love of books among people of all ages and backgrounds across Rhode Island, the Center for the Book sparks community connection and dialogue through a variety of programs, including Reading Across Rhode Island, Kids Reading Across Rhode Island, Letters About Literature, and the Art of the Book.Your gift to the Center for the Book will help fund the full range of Center for the Book programs that serve all Rhode Islanders.
