Leadership Giving

The Roger Williams Society recognizes donors who make gifts of $500 or more to any designation within a single fiscal year to Roger Williams University and/or RWU Law.

Through their vision and generosity, these leadership donors are an inspiration to others.  Leadership gifts are most significant to the advancement of the University and its mission of excellence, as they typically represent more than 80 percent of the annual cash contributions to the institution.

In recognition of these generous donors, Roger Williams has established a number of leadership giving circles.  Membership is renewable annually and is based on gifts made or facilitated by an individual and his/her spouse.  Corporate matching gifts count toward membership if received or verified within the fiscal year.  Alumni, parents and friends are encouraged to become members* of the Roger Williams Society in the following giving categories:

FOUNDERS CIRCLE, $10,000 and above
GLOBAL CIRCLE, $5,000 - $9,999
MOUNT HOPE CIRCLE, $2,500 - $4,999
BRIDGE CIRCLE, $1,000 - $2,499
BRISTOL CIRCLE, $500 - $999

* Membership benefits - All levels of leadership giving offer a variety of benefits for the donor, including: recognition in the Annual President's Report, a dedicated Roger Williams contact, and special notification and invitations to campus and regional events.
