We are faced with complex community challenges that no one organization can address alone.   GCRI is committed to creating a space for collaboration and shared impact to build a better Rhode Island.

Join us as we celebrate the potential of partnership at our Annual Meeting on Tuesday, November 1.

We are excited to welcome Gwynn Hughes, a Senior Program Officer at the Mott Foundation, to share her expertise on what is necessary to develop positive, sustainable partnerships that maximize community impact.

It will be a valuable time of connecting with peers and learning from the successes of a national leader in the field of community collaboration.
