Read about what other RIT faculty and staff members are doing to give back to RIT.
Peter Gabak gives because RIT students are our Legacy
As an adjunct faculty member, my greatest joy is working with bright, engaged students in CIAS and CLA. But like most of us at RIT, I know that getting here, and staying here to complete a degree is a financial struggle for many students and their families.
Ron Goldberg gives because of strong connections
My connections to RIT are strong, and there are a lot of them! As an alumnus of the renowned School of Printing, I was aware of the value of my association with that program from the start. Today, I am proud to see the school adapt to the new business environment while still providing a relevant, high quality education to students.
Sue Provenzano gives to a foundation of her life
When I came to RIT, at the urging of my best friend, my goal was to earn my bachelor’s degree and move on. I never expected to build my career here and am still amazed at the opportunities I’ve had over the years to grow, to challenge myself, and to try new things.
We are so proud to be part of the RIT family. We are alumni, as are our son--Lance, our daughter and her husband—Kristin and Richard Marano, Carol's father—Winfield J. Miller, Phil's sister and brother in law—Gwen and Richard Osburn and Carol's brother and sister in law—Gary and Lucy Miller. We truly are an RIT family. RIT helped us lay a solid foundation for our lives.
Jim Yarrington gives to honor a friend and colleague
"I've been part of RIT's campus planning area for nearly 17 years, and it has been my pleasure to not only see the campus grow and change over the years, but to actually be part of making that change happen. As an employee who is committed to the mission of the university, I believe it is important to give to RIT and easy to select an area of the university that is meaningful to me."
Bob Finnerty Gives to build Tiger Spirit!
"I have personally benefited on two fronts in my 12-year RIT career and that is why I feel compelled to give back to the university. First, I earned my master's degree at RIT in multidisciplinary studies, where I focused on marketing as well as communication and media technologies."
"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."
