Day of Giving 2024

On Thursday, April 11, Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital will present the annual Day of Giving in partnership with NBC 10 WJAR and Cumulus Media Providence. This year’s event is going to look – and sound – a little different as we combine the best qualities of our annual Rhode Island Hospital Day of Giving telethon with the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Radiothon into one daylong radio-telethon.

This means on April 11, across TV and radio, stories from patients and staff at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital will highlight our world-class, patient-centered care and spread the message of hope and gratitude while raising critical funds in support of our lifesaving mission.  Learn more
