R.I. Foundation gives to five nonprofit groups

Posted 1/6/14

PROVIDENCE – Five nonprofit organizations that serve the African American community will receive more than $38,000 in grants from the Black Philanthropy Initiative, a fund run by the Rhode Island Foundation.

They include:

• The Rhode Island Black Business Association received $5,000 to increase equity in access to capital for black-owned businesses. By improving access to loans and grants, the association will make it easier for black-owned companies to grow and increase revenue and hiring.

• The Rhode Island chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women received $4,178 to increase the assets of black women and their families by expanding outreach around financial literacy. The coalition worked with 129 women in 2013 and plans to double that number in the 2014.

• AS220 Youth received $8,614 to offer workshops using world myths to explore black-male identity, masculinity, family and community for about 100 young men at the state youth-detention center and in the Youth Studio.

• Amos House received $10,000 to provide fathers who are part of its transitional and permanent supportive housing programs with an extensive support system and household financial planning, healthy lifestyle changes and positive family activities.

• Youth in Action received $10,477 to expand Project Success, which helps youth make informed decisions about their futures by giving them a tool kit of “hard” and “soft” skills. •
