Your Role in the RISPE Journey

At the Rhode Island School for Progressive Education (RISPE), we champion the belief that high-quality public education is transformative. Education transcends mere necessity—it’s an inherent human right with lasting impacts through generations. By making a tax-deductible donation today, you’re not just funding education but securing brighter futures for every student in Rhode Island’s urban public schools and beyond.

RISPE’s mission is to elevate and improve educational outcomes in Rhode Island’s public schools. This calls for a multifaceted approach—diversifying the teaching community, cultivating actively anti-racist educators, and offering immersive year-long residency programs for the educators of tomorrow.

Generosity from individuals like you is not just supportive – it’s essential. We’re raising funds to recruit and fully support a diverse cohort of aspiring teachers. Your tax-deductible contribution can significantly offset tuition fees and grant a living stipend for our residents.

Checks can also be made payable to Rhode Island School for Progressive Education and mailed to 225 Dyer St, 2nd Floor, Providence, RI 02903. For any questions, please contact Nancy Cao Levesque, Director of Development, at or 401-248-8137.
