Ways to Give

Roger Williams University has grown from a small college to one of the premier liberal arts universities in the northeast.

This extraordinary growth in the quality of the institution would not have been possible without the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations that have supported the University’s mission of strengthening society through engaged teaching and learning.

By supporting RWU with your philanthropic donations, you are helping to preserve and improve an institution that is helping generations of young men and women on their own paths of professional and personal growth.

There are many ways to give to the University, and all of them are greatly appreciated and critically necessary to the success of RWU.

The Annual Fund

Join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty and staff who support the University with an unrestricted gift each year. All of those gifts – be they $5 or $500 – add up in a big way.

Leadership Giving

Become a member of The Roger Williams Society, and an inspiration to others with your vision and generosity by giving $500 or more in a single fiscal year.

Corporate & Foundation Giving

From scholarships to research projects to a range of campus initiatives, businesses and philanthropic organizations can connect with RWU for support of their goals and projects.

Athletic Giving

Your support as part of the Blue & Gold Club helps provide a wellness experience at Roger Williams University that provides teaching lessons that far transcend the playing fields and impact life-long development.


The Roger Williams University Phonathon program provides student ambassadors with real-world work experience that strengthens their communication skills and introduces them to the world of philanthropy and the impact our donors make on the RWU campus. 

Gift Planning

Support future generations in the causes that matter the most to you by planning your RWU legacy gift.
