Tremendous talent, creativity and innovation are in abundance here at RIT.

On behalf of the university, RIT students and graduates across the globe, our donor stewardship team thanks you for your generous and continuous support. We view YOU as one of RIT's most valuable assets. It is our mission to demonstrate our profound gratitude for your support of RIT.

To all our donors we thank you

Thank you to our amazing donors for all you do to help RIT. This video is for you. This year, we asked some of own students, Nathanael White '14, Paul Benns '16, Sara Caruso '16, and Mark Logan '15, to show you their appreciation. Please watch our video created by RIT students and performed by RIT's award-winning a cappella group, Eight Beat Measure. You make it happen… together as one.

Pech Chhun shares her gratitude with Jeff Harris and Joyce Pratt

Jeff Harris '75 and Joyce Pratt chose a unique gift to commemorate the 90th birthday of his mother. To honor her lifetime commitment to education, they established the Jane King Harris Scholarship. After learning about the many benefits, they chose to make their tremendous gift of scholarship, in part, through appreciated stock.

Thanks to Jeff's and Joyce's gift, Pech Chhun is the recipient of the Jane King Harris Scholarship. Because of their generosity, Pech–a Rochester City Scholar–is able to focus on earning her degree and one day fulfilling her dream of becoming a physician. Jeff and Joyce changed a life through a gift of stock.

Thank A Giver Day

Thank A Giver Day

RIT's first annual Thank A Giver (TAG) Day was February 12th and highlighted the impact donor gifts on the RIT experience. Red tags were placed on buildings, in classrooms and labs and throughout campus to show the ways that donor generosity supports an RIT education. We celebrate TAG Day to thank our campus donors and give the campus community the opportunity to thank all donors for supporting RIT. RIT ♥ OUR DONORS!
