Roger Williams University Retirees Association
The Roger Williams Retirees Association was established to allow former employees to stay connected to one another and to Roger Williams University and/or Roger Williams University School of Law. Membership is open to all employees, 62 years of age or older, who have retired from Roger Williams. This includes both faculty and staff retirees. Spouses of retired employees are also eligible for membership.
Recognizing the close interpersonal connections, depth of commitment and importance of contributions that each employee devotes to the University, RWU works closely with the Offices of University Advancement to ensure that our retirees may remain active participants within the University community. Members are invited to take advantage of a variety of benefits designed to enhance their lives socially, culturally and educationally. Those benefits, which are coordinated by the Office of Gift Planning, include:
- A variety of social events, including lectures, the Annual Faculty and Staff Holiday Party, the Annual Heritage Society Brunch and,
- A semi-annual Heritage Society newsletter containing information regarding University news, upcoming events, estate and financial planning information, and other materials of interest to our members.
For additional information, please contact The Office of University Advancement at (401) 254-5383 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.
You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Roger Williams University as a lump sum.
