Karen A. Davie '76


Karen A. Davie '76 is remembering Rhode Island College while looking towards the future. Karen, Senior Vice President for Philanthropy and Governance at Women and Infants Hospital, has made a provision in her will to benefit the college. She explains: "RIC had a significant impact on my life. Naming the college in my estate plan was an easy way to assist generations of students who will follow me."

When she thinks back, Karen recalls how her experience at Rhode Island College as a sociology major "taught what it meant to be a contributing member of society." She knows that students and faculty at RIC continue to live out that pattern of excellence. "I recognize that to do well at anything you must take the time to establish goals and then decide which path to follow to achieve success," she says, adding: "It was true when I first walked on the RIC campus and is still true today."

Planning ahead, Karen's contribution will ensure that this tradition of service and learning continues to flourish. Her membership in the Gold and White Society is a powerful way to affirm her commitment to RIC. She elaborates: "I made this bequest to honor the phenomenal professors and staff at RIC, and to challenge and inspire others to do the same."

If you would like to explore membership in the Gold and White Society through the creation of a bequest to Rhode Island College, please call the Office of College Advancement at 401-456-8086. Discover how your memories can encompass the future at RIC.
