As a part of our $2.7 million effort, 1969 set a goal to raise $125,000 in support of The Fund for Providence College, PC’s annual fund. To date over $3M has been raised from 106 classmates and $81,197.85 has been directed to The Fund for Providence College. Please consider making a gift today to The Fund for Providence College to help ‘69 achieve its $125,000 goal and thereby dedicate The Class of 1969 Veterans’ Memorial Green during Reunion Weekend.
