The Nathaniel Rochester Society (NRS) donors are RIT's most generous supporters, providing leadership level financial support ($1,000+ annually) to the university. NRS donors are recognized by the university for their annual support through a variety of community activities and communications. NRS provides opportunities for supporters to interact with their peers, celebrate exemplary service to the university, and join in the activities and campus life of the RIT family.

Thank you for being a part of this special group comprised of RIT's most generous supporters.

As always, thank you for your involvement with RIT and NRS.

Saunders Challenge Reaches Half-Way Point

Thanks to a recent planned gift from NRS member Susan Riley, The Saunders Challenge campaign for the E. Philip Saunders College of Business has raised more than 50% of its $15,000,000 goal. Susan's commitment pushed the attainment total for the Challenge to $7,647,541 (50.9%). That amount is being matched 3:1 by a challenge gift from NRS member Phil Saunders.


Each quarter we introduce one of our NRS members and the great impact they have at RIT. This is an opportunity for you to get to know those who share your commitment to RIT and what they are doing both on and off campus.
