URI Foundation

University of Rhode Island Foundation & Alumni Engagement (URIFAE) secures and manages contributions from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations, and friends on behalf of the University of Rhode Island, engages alumni through programming and communication, and establishes collaborative relationships with companies to encourage access to University resources through the Business Engagement Center.

New commitments combine with distributions from the endowment (managed by URIFAE) to provide the University with funding for scholarships, faculty, academic programs, and new initiatives to enrich the URI experience. We are grateful to the individuals and organizations whose generosity advances the University’s commitment to excellence, diversity, and innovation.

URIFAE President Lil Breul O’Rourke leads these efforts under the guidance of a volunteer Board of Directors and in concert with University leadership.

Guatemala Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Projects

Over the past 13 years nearly 50% of the Rotary Clubs in District 7890 have participated in funding sustainable clean water, sanitation, and hygiene projects for the indigenous Mayans in the northern highlands of Guatemala.  Under the stewardship of Rotarian Rick Lawrence from the Manchester, CT Rotary Club, this has resulted in 25 villages receiving these facilities, serving over 15,000 people.  Since 2006 we have partnered with an NGO, ALDEA, which has maintained a stellar reputation for accountability and project management and the Rotary Club of La Antigua, GUA which functions as our “Host”.
