Recently the Battle of Rhode Island Association (BoRIA) received an unrestricted grant of $1,000 from the Rhode Island Sons of the Revolution. BoRIA Director Jim Stearns: “We are honored to have the support of a long-standing historic organization whose mission is in line with ours, we look forward to working together to highlight Rhode Island’s Revolutionary War history.”

The Sons of the Revolution was founded in 1876 by members of the Society of the Cincinnati to broaden participation in preserving the American Heritage on the eve of this country’s centennial. Its mission is to promote knowledge and appreciation of the achievement of American independence and to foster fellowship among its members. As a nonprofit educational organization devoted to the principles and ideals of its founders, the modern Society maintains its headquarters in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia with 30 societies in the United States and Europe. The Rhode Island Society was formed in Newport on August 29, 1896.

BoRIA has received a RI Legislative Grant of $500 from State Senator Linda Ujifusa. This grant has been specified for lectures. Director Craig Clark : “We sincerely appreciate the support of our State Representatives. Senator Ujifusa has been a big supporter since our inception.”
