Donor Relations

RIT ensures a comprehensive and quality program of both stewardship initiatives as well as various events to cultivate, engage and recognize all of our donors and prospective donors for their tremendous support of this great university, our students and our faculty/staff. Our donor stewardship team is responsible for both sustaining and nurturing RIT's lifelong relationship with our donors while providing accurate and timely information specific to the investment, use and impact of donor gifts.

Donor-focused stewardship is accomplished through timely and appropriate gift acknowledgement, fund reporting, donor recognition, donor appreciation activities and events, and stewardship activities. Through meaningful and consistent contacts with donors and prospective constituencies, the office aids fundraising efforts in building lifelong relationships with donors and instills in them the trust that their gifts and investments are supporting the success of the university.
