In the [XX] years since I’ve graduated, it’s become so clear how much Providence College gave to me. That’s why, during my reunion year, I’m giving back to PC. Join me and make your reunion gift at givetopc.org. 

Providence College has changed so much since I graduated XX years ago. But it’s still the same place that I love, and the place that I will always call home. That’s why I’m supporting PC during my reunion year. Join me at givetopc.org.

Dear [first name],  

As a fellow classmate from Providence College, I am writing to encourage your support of PC in honor of your reunion. Reunion is such a wonderful time to come together as a class and commemorate all of ways that Providence College impacted us. 

Your support provides access to financial aid and opportunities for students while enhancing their college experience. There is so much to be proud of at PC, and it’s possible because of you. Whatever you choose to support through The Fund for Providence College – whether it’s emergency student support, athletics, financial aid, or the area of greatest need – you make an impact on today’s students.   

Any gift you make will move us one step closer to our reunion giving goals. [share numbers if available]. You can make your tax-deductible gift online at www.givetopc.org.  

I hope to see you at Reunion Weekend, May 31 – June 2, so we can come together as a class and celebrate our time at Providence College. For more information, visit providence.edu/reunion 

Have a great day and Go Friars! 

With Gratitude,
