United Way of Rhode Island
United Way of Rhode Island traces its roots to the Providence Community Fund (PCF), started in 1926 in response to a growing number of private agencies that were raising funds individually. The PCF was organized on the premise that a combined effort would give more Rhode Islanders the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of their neighbors in need. Resources would be distributed according to assessed needs—as defined by the community—thereby ensuring a balanced response.
Their critical role in the community requires that all of us involved in UWRI must assume the responsibility of earning public trust through all that we do. This bond of trust goes far beyond legal or regulatory requirements to include our core values and ethics. To fulfill this special obligation, these five core values provide the foundation on which they base all our actions and decisions.See more
