Support Rhode Island Hospital's Day of Giving

Malloy Strong Fund

The Malloy Strong Fund at Rhode Island Hospital provides general support including assisting patients who are having trouble affording their medications and other medical necessities associated with their diagnosis of cancer. Financial distress is often experienced due to high out-of-pocket expenditures during treatment as well as from the necessity of taking time off from work. These funds help to assist patients financially, physically, and emotionally through cancer treatment.

About the Malloy Strong Fund: In 2018, the Lifespan Cancer Institute named a fund at Rhode Island Hospital the Malloy Strong Fund, in honor of Edmond Malloy, Jr., a former Providence police officer who was diagnosed with cancer. Ed became central to the lives of many other cancer patients in the Lifespan Cancer Institute. It was Ed who would lift their spirits, tell a joke, and hold their hands even through his own pain. Ed inspired a movement - in and out of the cancer center. His motto of being Malloy Strong “Never Give Up” became a rallying cry, a source of strength and a call to action. Sadly, Ed lost his battle to cancer on Oct 31, 2019. However, his legacy lives on though the work of the Malloy Strong Fund and the cancer patients it serves.

Become a Champion for Health

How it works:

Simply fill out the form and enter the amount you want to give monthly and your credit card information, Rhode Island Hospital will do the rest. A Champion for Health is someone who gives a minimum gift of $15 monthly or a one-time gift of $180. Your donation will be automatically charged to your credit card every month without you needing to do anything. The same amount will be deducted on the same day of every month until you tell us you would like to increase, decrease, or stop your donation.

Why monthly giving is so impactful:

  • It is easy and convenient, allowing you to save on filling out a check every time you donate.
  • It enables you to make a larger donation by spreading the payments out through the course of the year rather than one lump sum.
  • You will save on paper and receive one tax receipt per year of your total annual giving for your records.

We hope you will be a part of the Rhode Island Hospital family for a long time, so we do not set an end date for your Champion of Health giving, thus allowing you complete control. If you need to make changes, please let us know. For more information about monthly giving, please contact the Development Department at 401-444-6500.
