The RIC Annual Fund

The annual fund provides the Rhode Island College Alumni Association with resources that enable it to support the college, its students and faculty. Gifts to the annual fund sustain alumni programming, underwrite faculty research, and support student scholarships. Learn more about the annual fund and how to give by clicking here.


The annual giving program first began when Edward Travers '51, president of the Alumni Association from 1956-58, felt that there should be a formal year-to-year annual fund established. Along with Travers, Donald Driscoll '54 and Albert Mink '54, were instrumental in organizing one of the first annual fund drives which raised $3,856 in 1961. It was co-chaired by Driscoll and Margaret Bresnahan '45, president. Today, contributions to the Alumni Association's Annual Fund top $250,000.

The Rhode Island College Alumni Association Annual Fund continues to thrive each year thanks to the generous support of alumni and friends.
