50th Class Reunion Giving
From May 17-19, 2013, members of the Class of 1963 will return to Kingston to celebrate their fiftieth reunion on a campus that despite great change and growth, has managed to retain much of the same charm and appeal it had five decades ago.
For some, it will be their first time back to campus since graduating, and it promises to be an exciting and fun-filled weekend. In preparation for this event, the Class of 1963 Reunion Committee, which is comprised of members from your graduating class, is hard at work planning the festivities, and they look forward to seeing you in May.
In conjunction with the reunion, and following a long-standing tradition, the 50th Reunion Class Giving Committee has set an ambitious and very fitting goal: to secure 50% participation from members of the Class of 1963. This is a wonderful opportunity for class members to leave a lasting legacy to URI, one that will illustrate the deep appreciation they have for the University and one that will provide valued charitable funding opportunities impacting students, faculty and the overall University community.
URI alumni have proven, time and time again, that they have a strong affinity for the University and they have also demonstrated that loyalty in the form of charitable gifts. Reunion giving provides class members the opportunity to follow suit and make a gift in honor of this very special milestone.
This year, the Committee has decided to raise money specifically to support the President’s 21st Century Fund for Excellence. This fund provides President Dooley with the flexibility to implement and support programs and initiatives that he considers critical to the future of URI. His plans are ambitious, and the Class of 1963 is proud to support his efforts.

It is important to remember that no matter where you direct your gift, your contribution will count towards the overall reunion class giving total.
If you are interested in making a legacy gift to the University, which could include making URI a beneficiary of a bequest or charitable gift annuity, or would like to explore the possibility of making a planned gift, please contact the URI Foundation Office of Gift Planning at 401.874.9530.
