United Way of Rhode Island has created a statewide day of giving called #401Gives. Funds for over 300 non-profits in Rhode Island will be raised when the community needs it most. Donations are given to a non-profit designated by the donor.

The giving will begin at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, April 1, and continue through Thursday, April 2, at 5:59 a.m. The first $50,000 raised will be matched by the Rhode Island Foundation.

To donate or for more information, visit 401gives.org.
