Faculty/Staff Donor Spotlight
“My colleague and friend, Jim Winter, spent his entire professional career in financial aid administration. He was intelligent with a very dry sense of humor. He was an avid baseball fan and outdoorsman. He regularly practiced his faith by serving others, and in that regard, used his detailed knowledge of financial aid to help make an RIT education affordable for students and their families. I give to RIT because I see the impact that RIT has had on so many students including my oldest daughter, Elizabeth ’11. I direct my gifts to the Jim Winter Memorial Scholarship to honor a friend and colleague and his commitment to student success. By giving directly to the Jim Winter Memorial Scholarship, I know that my gift is having a direct and tangible impact on students because the scholarship is unrestricted and is given to students who demonstrate financial need.”

EVERY GIFT helps change a life
While each new school year seems more exciting than the last, the one constant for all faculty and staff members is the pride we take in RIT as we see it - and its students - blossom before our eyes.
As part of the campus community, we also know the value of supporting RIT. Response to our annual Fund for RIT campus campaign continues to grow each year as more of us realize that our gift will:
- Help students stay in school and succeed
- Support a great place to work, learn and grow
- Allow an RIT education to be accessible as well as academically excellent
Annual giving is critical to the life of this university and no matter the amount of the gift, EVERY GIFT COUNTS and directly impacts the lives of our students.
Recently Fiske Guide to Colleges rated RIT as a "Best Buy" school because:
The school is strong in anything related to computing, art and design, and engineering. ... Photography and imaging are among tops in the nation. RIT is devoted to undergraduates."
Devoted. Yes. And changing lives. One by one.
Traditionally, faculty and staff are asked to support the General Scholarship Fund, but of course we may give to our favorite area of RIT. For those of us who are alums as well as a faculty/staff member, our participation in the annual giving campaign will help improve RIT's national ranking and increase the value of every degree.
One of the easiest ways to give is through payroll deduction. Make a small gift from each paycheck until you reach your goal. To sign up for payroll deduction or to make a gift by check or credit card, select one of the PDF forms below.
