Rising Tide - Shared ProsperityCountless Rhode Islanders work hard every day yet still struggle to make ends
meet. Low wages and the high cost of living force too many working families to make choices between housing, heat, food and health care.

At the same time, choices are being made at the State House that profoundly affect families and communities – choices about investing in education, housing, health care, and other vital services that can either create opportunity and prosperity or hold it back.

The Institute is committed to informing and influencing those choices, but we cannot do it alone. We count on our generous donors who believe in us, engage with us, and invest in us. As a member of the Rising Tide Society, your gift of $500 demonstrates a commitment to ensuring that the choices made at the State House support our families, our communities and a strong economy in which prosperity is shared by all Rhode Islanders.
