UWRI Honors Campaing Leaders of Washington Trust

The United Way of Rhode Island presented awards to local campaign leaders for helping to strengthen communities. 

“Every workplace campaign volunteer, and especially those who take on a leadership role, epitomizes one of our strongest beliefs—that we can accomplish much more by working together than any of us could do individually. It was a privilege to recognize the efforts of Campaign Leaders who went the extra mile to make their communities stronger and help change the lives of their neighbors,”  said Anthony Maione, President and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island

In total, campaign leaders helped rase close to $13 million by inspiring more of their colleagues to support life changing programs, representing three quarters of UWRI's annual fundraising. 

The Honorees 

The first award, the "Change Makers," recognized the campaign leaders of the top fundraising companies in Rhode Island during the 2016-16 campaign.
