Faculty & Staff Giving at URI

Our faculty and staff are the heart of this University.

Your impact, no matter your role here at URI, is significant because you help make this community home for over 16,000 Rhody students. And, more than anyone, you know how amazing our students truly are.

With your help, we can provide financial support across our campuses, funding and providing assistance to any number of URI's amazing student programs, and even creating academic opportunity that might not otherwise have been possible.

We thank you, sincerely, for all that you do to make this University a better place. We hope we can count on you to make a gift to help enhance, even more, the impact that our talented and committed faculty and staff have on the URI community.

And, we've made it easy for you.  Make a gift to the URI Annual Fund online or use a payroll deduction form to further simplify making a gift to URI. 

You can allocate your gift to the designation of your choice. But know that, no matter how you give, student's will benefit from your generosity.

"As a longtime faculty member and one-time graduate student at URI, I am aware of the University’s many strengths.  I am also aware, however, that many in our community have real needs.  These may be undergraduate students having trouble paying tuition bills, graduate students trying to finance a research trip, or junior faculty cobbling together funding to present a paper at a conference.  As a community we need to come together and support each other. One way I do this is through an annual gift and I encourage my colleagues across campus to consider the same."
