Providence College acknowledges the support of our generous benefactors in many ways, including the following leadership giving societies. This year, members of our leadership giving societies contributed a combined total of nearly $11.5 million to Providence College. Thank you.

Financial Aid and Scholarships:
Despite awarding over $54.9 million in total College-funded scholarships and grant aid, Providence College meets, on average, only 81% of student financial need. Closing this financial accessibility gap is a critical priority for the College. Providence College remains grateful to all alumni, parents, and friends whose contributions to financial aid have made a life-altering impact and is pleased to recognize these St. Dominic Society level leadership donors for their support to endowed scholarship and academic funds, the Angel Fund, the Torch Scholars Program, and other direct grants.
