Class Agent Program
The Class Agent Program is designed to build excitement, encourage participation, and create awareness about the need for philanthropic support for Providence College. The goal is to create positive and successful energy around giving back to PC in non-reunion years with a focus on raising support for the Annual Fund (PC Fund, Angel Fund, Friars Forever Fund).
Chair of the Annual Fund
Welcome! Thank you for investing your valuable time and resources in PC by serving as a Class Agent. Your participation will not only encourage others to follow your leadership example, but inspire your peers to reconnect with the College. As we embark on the next century of PC, building on the extraordinary momentum of the Our Moment: The Next Century for Providence College campaign, your work to increase awareness and participation in giving to the Annual Fund is crucial. This experience presents many opportunities to connect with peers, the College today, and the mission we uphold. I look forward to partnering with you in the months ahead.
Thank you for volunteering. Together we are one community, one family, one PC.
