Thank you, Class of 1968.

Your generosity helped us exceed our goal!

On May 18-20, close to 160 members of the Class of 1968 and their guests returned to Kingston to celebrate their 50th reunion.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the announcement of class giving totals and the presentation of a giant mock check to URI President David M. Dooley by members of the Reunion Giving Committee. At the time of the check presentation, more than $335,000 was raised thanks to the generous gifts of close to 200 members of the Class of 1968. 

During the three-days of festivities, classmates rekindled friendships while revisiting a flourishing campus. The weekend began on Friday with a URI classroom experience and tour of the Inner Space Center at the Bay Campus. The reunion culminated with a wonderful tradition on Sunday: the 50th reunion class leading the commencement march.

The URI Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in the class giving initiative. You have truly set a high bar for future 50th reunion giving efforts! Your generosity will help create wonderful opportunities for current and future URI students.

The Foundation also extends a heartfelt thank you to the members of the reunion committee for organizing a meaningful weekend and a successful giving effort.
