RI Foundation fronts $1M to Make It Happen

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Rhode Island Foundation has rolled out a list of projects it would like to see worked on as part of its Make It Happen initiative. Hundreds of leaders in business, health care, the arts and other industry brain stormed for two days last month on ways to turn around the state's economy.

Now the Rhode Island Foundation has organized those ideas into themes ranging from closing the skills gap to marketing the state. The Foundation has put up a million dollars to help jump start some of those ideas.

RIPR's Elisabeth Harrison sat down with Rhode Island Foundation President and CEO Neil Steinberg.
