Did you know there are ways to support Rhode Island School of Design or the RISD Museum that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security?
You can support RISD with gifts that don't impact the way you live by designating Rhode Island School of Design or the RISD Museum to receive estate assets in the future, or by making immediate gifts to us of assets that are "out of sight and out of mind."
We call these "Affordable Gifts" because anyone can make them now without impacting cash flow, lifestyle, or family security.
