The Difference You Make

You Give to Make a Difference – To Change The World For the Better. With your donation to Adoption Rhode Island, you do.

What happens when we put children first, always?

They are safe. They are loved. They have a voice. They belong. They succeed.

They have a place to call home—always. And, they can go on to change the world.

Did you know that as a private agency ARI depends on donations like yours?

We could not give children the future they deserve without you.

Government funding and contracts only cover a part of the cost of transforming lives in the ways that a child or family depends on.

How your gift will touch the life of a child:

You help ARI’s team to dig deep and leave no stone unturned to find the connections that will change the future for a child.

You help a child to heal from hurt and trauma and prepare to be part of the adoptive family ready to open their hearts and be by their side—forever.

You strengthen the bonds between siblings separated in care, and ensure we can do everything possible to bring—and keep siblings together in adoption.

You are by the side of teens and youth transitioning out of foster care to be sure they finish high school and are prepared to succeed— with a place to call home.

You surround children, teens and families with love and the knowledge they are not alone.

Are you interested in donating your car, making a gift of stock, hosting a fundraiser, donating from your Donor Advised Fund or other ways to make your donation?

A special note about 2020 and the pandemic…

Helping children to heal and families to thrive during the COVID-19 crisis has meant expanding the ways we help with direct assistance and basic needs that are far more urgent and pose a graver threat to well-being than ever before.

We thank the ARI community—old and new friends, and those of you who come to us wanting to learn more. This has been a time of joining together in remarkable ways to help us respond to children and families in crisis to make hope real for a child waiting and feeling alone, and ensuring that these beautiful, resilient, strong children, teens and young adults see a brighter, better future ahead. We need you because they need us.
