Your Gift Can Last Forever
An endowment gift to the University of Rhode Island today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a contribution to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment contributions are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at URI. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.Watch How It Works

An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure URI continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 contribution to URI, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
