THERE IS A POWERFUL MOMENTUM building at Providence College. Whether you look at the strong academics, the campus transformation, or the athletics success, the evidence is everywhere. The core of that momentum — the linchpin of what makes opportunities at Providence College possible — is the Annual Fund.The Annual Fund provides unrestricted funds that can be used immediately and flexibly, giving PC’s leaders the ability to continue to respond to the needs of today’s students.
For PC to remain competitive with our peers, our growing endowment must be augmented by the Annual Fund so that we can o er the academic excellence that has come to be expected from a PC education and strengthen the student experience for the next generation of Friars. The impact of a gift to the Annual Fund that supports immediate needs goes beyond the value of the dollar it represents. It takes $22 of endowment funds to create $1 of payout, so an immediate gift of $100 is equivalent to $2,200 of endowment. Taken together, annual gifts have far more impact than one may realize.I invite you to read through these materials and learn how you can build on the momentum of Providence College through a gifts to the Annual Fund.
Thank you for your support and Go Friars!
