PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Two of Rhode Island’s nonprofits are getting a boost in funds.

New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft joined Gov. Dan McKee Tuesday morning to present a $40,000 check in grants to charities in the Ocean State.

Man Up, Inc. and Youth in Action each received a $20,000 donation from the New England Patriots Foundation. The funds are made possible by the Rhode Island charity license plate program.

“We commit that at least double what comes in comes back for nonprofits in the state of Rhode Island,” Kraft said. “I want people to take pride in these plates to let them know that they’re doing good for their own state at the same time.”

For more than a decade, Patriots fans in Rhode Island have had the chance to show off their team pride on their license plate.

Last fall, the Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation partnered with the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles to create a new license plate design, celebrating the team’s six Super Bowl championships.

Proceeds from the Patriots license plates directly support the work of the Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation in Rhode Island.
