until ROAR Day!

24HR Matching Gift Challenge

September 26th is the eighth annual Raise Our Annual Responses (ROAR) Day!
ROAR Day is the annual campus-wide launch for the Fund for RIT’s annual giving campaign. Last year, ROAR Day brought in 1,077 gifts from members of the RIT community — faculty, staff, students and alumni — and just over $50,000 — IN JUST ONE DAY! Let’s beat that number this year!

The 24-Hour ROAR Day Challenge
This year, President Bill Destler, Associate of the University Dr. Rebecca Johnson, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Jeremy Haefner, Interim Senior Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Heath Boice-Pardee and Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations Lisa Cauda are challenging the campus community to come together and support RIT on ROAR Day — make a gift on this day and they will match it. Don’t miss out on this only opportunity to have your gift matched!*

*RIT student, faculty and staff gifts made on September 26, 2013 of $5 up to $50 will be matched dollar-for-dollar; gifts over $50 will receive a $50 match. For new payroll deduction pledges made on ROAR Day, the first $50 in pledge payments will be matched. Gifts are only being matched on ROAR Day for the 2013-2014 academic year, so this is your chance to double your gift of $5 to $50 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 September 26.
