The Value of Giving

Students in groups and walking at the end of the quad

Philanthropy is critical to the success of our institution and community. Generosity can:

  • provide students with scholarships so they can build academic momentum and limit debt
  • ensure that students have access to state-of-the-art facilities
  • support research and professional development that our faculty bring back to their classrooms

and bring great fulfillment to the donor.

"I give back because I am grateful for all that Rhode Island College did for me and so many others. My four years at RIC provided me with the foundation for further graduate studies and a satisfying and successful career as a school administrator, college professor and nonprofit executive."

- Carl Smith '62 Ph.D.
