The Class of 1971 Golden Anniversary Committee has set a goal of raising $50,000 in celebration of this once-in-a-lifetime milestone. Imagine: the total cost of our education was approximately $980. Today’s in-state student pays approximately $8,929 each year in tuition and fees. With gratitude for the benefits of the education that enabled us to pursue careers, raise families, and enjoy a quality of life that would otherwise not have been possible, please make a generous donation to the 1971 Class Fund to establish this scholarship.

Celebrating the Class of 1971 & 2021!

This past weekend was the long-awaited Rhode Island College Class of 2021 Commencement. The trials and tribulations this class has endured and overcome in some ways mirror the challenging times of our era, 50 years ago. The class of 2021 has shown incredible resilience. They have persevered, and this weekend they crowned their accomplishments. Their tassels flipped and their hats flew.

I’m so encouraged by this occasion. I am inviting my classmates to join me with a gift to kick off our own efforts to celebrate our alma mater. The Class of 1971 has a tremendous opportunity to raise much-needed funds to support the next generation of RIC students. When I think about how much Rhode Island College has contributed to my life, my family and my community, paying forward that gift of education is a legacy I want to support. As such, I will match all gifts up to $10,000 starting TODAY. Please join me. Make your gift, and let’s tip our hats to the Class of 2021 on this special celebration.
