401Gives Day (April 1, 2023)
401Gives is a statewide day of giving, on April 1, 2023 (4-01!).
The online fundraising campaign is designed to bring a collective voice to the nonprofit community and deepen the state’s culture of giving. This giving challenge combines a state-of-the-art platform with a sophisticated media strategy to highlight the impact of Rhode Island’s nonprofit sector, which accounts for 18 percent of the state’s total workforce.
In 2020, United Way of Rhode Island launched 401Gives
to encourage all Rhode Islanders to support local nonprofits. Each year has brought more engagement and participation and this means more support for our neighbors, statewide.
We're proud to, once again, join hundreds of other nonprofit organizations focused on enriching the lives
of the individuals they serve.
Together, we can make 401Gives 2023 the biggest day
of giving in Rhode Island history!
Looking for a way to get involved?
We are often asked how someone can help, beyond monetary donations. 401Gives Day presents the perfect opportunity for our supporters to volunteer a little time, generate excitement with their networks, and make a BIG impact! On average, we spend 2.5 hours a day on social media -- joining us as a Peer Fundraiser takes less than half of that time.
One day. One post. That's all it takes! Sign up to be a Fundraiser for Plates with Purpose on April 1, 2023 and join the movement to raise greater awareness about the food insecurity crisis in our state. We'll contact you as the event gets closer with some helpful hints and suggested activities you can do from your computer, tablet or phone. We look forward to feeding the need with you!
