The 1863 Society

Become a member

Philanthropy is essential to sustaining every successful academic medical center. It is because of the generosity and kindness of its supporters that Rhode Island Hospital continues to thrive and grow while meeting the needs of our community since 1863.

The 1863 Society celebrates donors who have made an annual commitment of $250 or more to our hospital’s Fund for Excellence, supporting our areas of greatest need and lifesaving work while investing in the future of medicine, research, and medical education across southeastern New England.

With your generosity, we can continue to provide the most advanced and superb care right here in Rhode Island. Through our unyielding pursuit of excellence in service, education, research, technology, and information, we will continue to be recognized regionally and nationally for the clinical expertise delivered through our centers of excellence.
