Since 1932, The Champlin Foundation has distributed nearly $551M, almost entirely in the State of Rhode Island.
The Champlin Foundation is a private foundation as defined in Section
509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and is exempt from Federal income
tax under Section 501(c)(3).
The Foundation makes direct grants to tax exempt organizations,
substantially all in Rhode Island, almost exclusively for capital needs. Capital
needs may consist of equipment, construction, renovations, the purchase
of real property and reduction of mortgage indebtedness.
One important goal is to fund tax exempt organizations within Rhode
Island that will have the greatest impact on the broadest possible
segment of the population. Another important goal is to provide "hands
on" equipment and facilities for those being served by these tax-exempt
Grant requests are accepted from March 1st through April 30th.
