R.I. Foundation funds good ideas

July 20, 2011

PROVIDENCE — From humble beginnings nearly a century ago, through good times and bad, the Rhode Island Foundation has grown its endowment to a whopping $565 million.
But the state's leading philanthropic organization knows that no matter how much it grows the pot, it's never going to be big enough.
“There are always more good ideas than we can fund,” says Owen Heleen, RIF's vice president for grant programs. “That's why we're always challenged to support more and more of the good ideas that come our way.”
