Loyal Friar Society

The Loyal Friar Society recognizes donors who consistently donate to the College at any giving level. This society acknowledges the many PC donors who understand that consecutive annual giving – no matter the amount – has the power to transform the lives of students. There are more than 5,000 donors in the Loyal Friar Society. Members range from alumni who graduated in the 1950s to members of the FOLD (Friars of the Last Decade), to faculty, staff, and friends.

As a devoted donor to the College, you’ve helped to ensure that all students and faculty have the resources they need to thrive. Thank you for your consistent and sustained generosity to PC.


To qualify for the Loyal Friar Society, donors must make contributions to the College at any amount for at least three consecutive years. As a member of the Loyal Friar Society, you will receive:

  • Recognition in the Donor Gratitude Report as a Loyal Friar
  • Invitations to special donor-recognition and campus-wide events
  • Ribbons denoting Loyal Friar status at College events
  • Additional recognition depending on giving level

Giving to Providence College is a small token of my appreciation for the educational opportunities that provided the building blocks for my career in marketing and logistics. My time as a varsity hockey player taught me the importance of team building and helped me establish enduring friendships.

I give back to PC because of its meaningful impact on my life, both personally and professionally. The value of my PC education is immeasurable not only because of its outstanding curriculum but also because of its faith-based tradition that instilled in me positive, problem-solving thinking. I am grateful to be part of the generous and loving Friar community that warmly welcomed me when I moved to the Southwest. I’m equally proud to contribute to the PC School of Business and watch as it becomes a top ranked business school for its nurturing active learning, innovation, teamwork, and entrepreneurial thinking. I’m a forever grateful Friar.
