Angel Fund

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What is the Angel Fund?

The Angel Fund provides an ongoing source of emergency financial support, such as, financial aid so that current students of families with unexpected and extraordinary financial challenges can continue their studies at Providence College.

Help PC Students Reach Commencement

With the support of alumni, parents, and friends, hundreds of students are continuing their studies at Providence College through gifts to the Angel Fund. While generous donors have already contributed nearly $4.4 million since the Fund’s inception in April 2009, it is still not enough. The demand for emergency aid regularly exceeds resources from the Angel Fund.

The Office of Financial Aid receives approximately 300 requests annually for additional consideration based on a change of circumstance and hardship. PC is able to meet about 190 of these requests through the Angel Fund and in FY18 this amounted to nearly $800,000. 

College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P.’s top priority is to ensure that each and every student will have the resources necessary to complete his or her PC education. Your gift will help ensure that deserving students can continue this opportunity of a lifetime. Make a gift to the Angel Fund.

PC’s Angel Fund program received national recognition in a 2010 New York Times article. Read m​ore at A Fairy Godmother to Help with College Aid.
