24HR Matching Gift Challenge

  • October 2 is the ninth annual Raise Our Annual Responses (ROAR) Day!
    ROAR Day is the campus-wide launch for the Fund for RIT’s annual giving campaign. Last year, a record-breaking 2,327 members of our RIT family—students, faculty and staff—came together and contributed over $100,000 — IN JUST ONE DAY! Let’s beat that number this year!

  • The ROAR Day Matching Gift Challenge is on!
    This year, campus leaders Bill Destler, Rebecca Johnson, Gerry Buckley, Lisa Cauda, Heather Engel, Jeremy Haefner, Sandy Johnson, Jim Miller, Ryne Raffaelle, Kim Slusser, Craig Smith, Debbie Stendardi and Howard Ward are joining Fred Smith, alumni and members of our Board of Trustees by committing to match every RIT student, faculty and staff gift made on ROAR Day.

  • Don’t miss the opportunity to make your mark on October 2 between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.*

*RIT student, faculty and staff gifts made on October 2, 2014 of $5 up to $40 will be matched dollar-for-dollar per person. For new payroll deduction pledges made on ROAR Day, the first $40 in pledge payments will be matched. Gifts are only being matched on ROAR Day for the 2014-2015 academic year, so this is your chance to double your gift of $5 to $40 for an area of RIT you love!

To make a gift by payroll, please visit one of our tables, or print the Employee Gift Form and turn it in to the Development Office before 5 p.m. on October 2.
