Charitable Activities & Hobbies

Too often, children are lost in the legal system―they do not have the power to vote; they do not have the money to hire lobbyists and others to promote their interests; and sadly, they are frequently the victims of abuse. The Ray Pacia Kids Foundation was formed to help children by providing direct assistance to multiple charities that promote the health, safety and welfare of our children.

The Ray Pacia Kids Foundation is recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) business charitable entity. Mr. Pacia donates a percentage of all his legal fees to the foundation to provide financial assistance to the foundation charities. The foundation's officers and directors receive no salary and all of the money is used for charitable purposes.

Mr. Pacia created the foundation to celebrate 30 years of practicing law in Rhode Island, during which he has had no disciplinary complaints, no ethics complaints, and no malpractice complaints. The formation of the Ray Pacia Kids Foundation reflects his acute appreciation of the faith, confidence and trust his clients have placed in him, and his desire to use the fruits of his labor to help our children.

Mr. Pacia also sponsors many youth athletic teams for boys and girls, including baseball, softball, soccer, hockey and bocce. He is the founder and benefactor of the Rhode Island Motorcycle Association scholarship fund.

In his spare time, Mr. Pacia enjoys playing piano, traveling, skiing, hiking and spending time with his family. He has an album and has performed live with his ensemble at international jazz festivals. On occasion, he plays piano at senior citizen living centers, where the residents enjoy his arrangements of popular standards. Fluent in Italian, Mr. Pacia has lived and studied abroad, and is a member of the Rhode Island Teachers of Italian Advisory Board.
