Areas of Support

RIT is a place where students and faculty come together to solve problems and provide solutions to real-world problems. We are committed to excellence and the future of our students. We rely on our alumni and friends to build a foundation of financial support as we continue to advance. Your support of RIT matters, and your gift can support the area of RIT that matters to you.
