Rhode Island Hospital

Volunteering & Donations

Rhode Island Hospital welcomes the interest and support of our patients, their families and friends. We rely on many loyal and generous members of the community to help us.


Because we are a not-for-profit hospital, gifts and donations help support our mission and operations. We welcome all contributions. You might choose to designate a gift to support a specific purpose or department, or to make a gift in honor of your physician or caregivers or in honor or memory of a loved one. All donations to Rhode Island Hospital are tax deductible.

There are many ways of giving, now and in the future, that help ensure Rhode Island Hospital will always be able to deliver the highest quality care to the community. For more information, please call the Rhode Island Hospital Foundation at 401-444-6500.


We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers who donate their time to help others. Whether they are visiting with patients or updating family members, caring is the most important service they provide. The manager of volunteer services would be glad to discuss our volunteer program with you. For more information, please call 401-444-5530.
