Serving the Needs of Families & Communities Across RI & MA
Children’s Workshop Foundation
The Children’s Workshop Foundation was established in 2011 to serve the needs of families and communities across Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)3 public charity; all of our proceeds go toward bettering the lives of children, improving communities, and furthering education.
Mission & Vision
The Children’s Workshop Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children and under served families in the communities served by The Children’s Workshop, Inc by helping them access needed resources and quality education. We will accomplish this by supporting other organizations whose goals align with ours and through mentoring and community outreach. We were founded by employees of The Children’s Workshop, Inc who wanted to find a way to give MORE back to their communities.
The Children’s Workshop Foundation envisions communities where all families are strong, independent, healthy, and empowered.
