Since its founding in 1882, the Harvard Club of Rhode Island has strived to connect Harvard alumni with each other. The Club offers a wide variety of activities, including social, networking, educational and sporting events. Many of these take advantage of both our close proximity to Cambridge as well as to Ivy League rival, Brown University. We also coordinate outreach to identify, interview and help foster the next generation of Harvard students from Rhode Island.
One of our most important goals is to help you reconnect with old friends while making new ones. Like Harvard, our membership is a diverse group of alumni from a wide range of class years, most of the various Harvard schools and diverse professions. We aim to promote fellowship and lifelong learning among our members in the spirit of Harvard University. We hope you'll participate in an event soon and get to know the fascinating community of local Harvard grads. Click here to join or renew your membership. While our all volunteer team strives to keep expenses low, we rely on dues to fund our philanthropic efforts and support complimentary networking events that build our community here in to Rhode Island.
This year we are adding a new purpose to our club - the chance to giveback to a very important cause with a tragic Rhode Island link. Join us in helping defraying the medical and rehab expenses of Harvard football player Ben Abercrombie ’21, who suffered a severe neck injury during his first college game at URI last fall and remains paralyzed. The Harvard Varsity Club started a fund to support Ben and his family through his arduous recovery process. To donate now click here: Ben Abercrombie '21 Fund.
