JFF receives RI Foundation award


At its annual meeting on May 17, the Rhode Island Foundation (RIF) presented the Carter Inspiring Partner Award to the Jewish Federation Foundation (JFF) for its support of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island. This award is given to donors who practice a thoughtful commitment to philanthropy.

JFF oversees the Alliance’s endowment, so in a sense, it is the Alliance’s largest donor. As such, it enables the Alliance to enhance and strengthen the Jewish and greater community. In 2018, JFF and RIF created a partnership benefiting both organizations. This relationship is only possible because of shared values and aspirations for the community.

Alliance President & CEO Adam Greenman accepted the award in front of 800-900 meeting attendees, many of whom were likely learning about JFF and the Alliance for the first time. He reflected, “The Rhode Island Foundation’s work on behalf of all people in our state is second to none. To be recognized by them as an inspiring partner is a recognition of our efforts not just to create a vibrant, thriving Jewish community, but vibrant, thriving Rhode Island for all.”
