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 Fund for Providence College. The Fund for Providence College provides funding 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 Fund for Providence College so that we can offer 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 Fund for Providence College 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 gift to The Fund for Providence College.
Thank you for your support and Go Friars!
