Through donated funds RIGS supports a variety of projects in our community. We maintain two funds to support those efforts:
The Library Fund supports acquisitions for our two collections in the Greenville and Portsmouth, RI, public libraries. Our organization from time to time will acquire books and other media for the RIGS genealogical collections in these two libraries which can be made available to other libraries throughout Rhode Island. Funds are also provided for the maintenance of these collections.
The General Fund supports other donations for worthy purposes to enhance genealogy in Rhode Island. RIGS has donated funds for such projects as the restoration of historic documents in the City of Providence Archives as well as a new computer for the Hope Valley Library.
