The DiSanto Priest Charitable Foundation is the Rhode Island nonprofit managing charitable giving for the financial services firms, DiSanto, Priest & Co. and Bentley Wealth Advisors, in support of local RI charities. Founded in 2006, the Foundation is a non-profit entity whose mission is:

“To make a difference and provide opportunities to outstanding and worthy charitable organizations that positively impact our staff, community, friends, clients, and associates by providing hospitality, volunteer efforts, and financial support.”

The Foundation is a structured organization with a board of directors, bylaws, and quarterly meetings. However, at the core of the Foundation funding is the generosity, energy, and spirit of the employees of the member firms. Their participation in a wide variety of charitable events along with internal fundraising activities provides the opportunity to fulfill the Foundation’s mission.
