The purpose of the 1854 Society is to increase the recognition and involvement of our most dedicated alumni and friends whose lifetime giving to Rhode Island College exceeds $10,000, and those corporations and associations whose total giving exceeds $100,000. Members of the 1854 Society are the philanthropic leaders of the college whose gifts have a tremendous impact on the college.
Membership in the exclusive Gold and White Society is extended to alumni and friends of the College who have made a provision in their wills to benefit Rhode Island College through the Rhode Island College Foundation. When you notify us that you that you have made a provision in your will to benefit the college, you will be enrolled as a member.
Rhode Island College is grateful for all gifts at every level. Our programs are sustained by the many donations of our extended community, and we are pleased to recognize this generosity.
