What is an annual fund?

The annual fund supports programs and exhibits, education initiatives and outreach, field trips, and helps RIHS expand our role and relevance in the community. It provides opportunities for heritage and history volunteers and professionals to network and learn. The annual fund provides access to resources for students and teachers across Rhode Island to learn history, geography, and social studies. And it helps with the preservation and expansion of our collections for researchers around the world. Your gift makes a difference today and for future generations. Donate today!
