Why Your Gift Matters
Arly Cortez ’18 of Providence is interning this summer with PwC. This fall, she will be a COB teaching assistant and an intern with Kahn, Litwin, Renza & Co. She is a recipient of the Brooksby A. Sandeerson Memorial Scholarship and the Peter M. and Mildred J. Galanti Scholarship.
“The scholarships I received helped me invest more time at school. I solely rely on financial aid, grants, and scholarships to afford college,” she said. “By receiving all this aid, I am able to be more focused at school and in my involvement—and I worry less.”
The College of Business is committed to educating the next generation of business leaders and focuses on students first. We are grateful to our many alumni and corporate partners for their commitment to the success of our students.
Support for the College can take many forms and can take place through a gift to the Fund for URI, a new or existing endowment to support faculty and student scholarships, sponsorship of college-related events and programming, and support for capital projects.
By providing a gift of any type, including a planned gift, you are helping to ensure the future success of the College of Business and its students.
Your generosity to the College of Business makes a difference in the life of the College and in the future of our students. There are many ways you can make an impact that lasts a lifetime.
Scholarships, such as the recently established Frank and Deborah Budnick Scholarship, make a great impact on individual students’ lives.
- The Annual Fund: College of Business
The Annual Fund: CBA supports student programs such as travel and internships, professional development, academic scholarships, facility improvements, technology enhancements and other areas to help the College maintain its reputation for excellence.
- Faculty Support
Giving to or establishing an endowed professorship, such as the one recently established by William Eigen, helps to attract and retain top-notch faculty.

Sponsoring events such as the College’s annual Alumni Career Day provide funding for professional development essential for students. Deloitte Consulting recently sponsored our Fireside Chat Series, bringing industry leaders to campus to speak with students about careers, required skills, and industry trends.

When you establish an endowment or make a donation to an existing endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
