Who cares about the Fund for RIT?

I care about the annual Fund for RIT…
because I stand behind RIT and its future! As a student, I poured so much of myself into my education, athletics and activities — all supported by alumni who came before me. I graduated feeling encouraged to make the world a better place. When we work together by giving back, RIT can achieve even greater things!”

I care about the annual Fund for RIT…
because I see it as an investment to enhance the value of my degree from RIT in the future. It also helps me feel connected having moved so far away from the area.”

We care about the annual Fund for RIT…
because it creates an opportunity for us to give back to an institution that has given us so much. Not only do we value the education we received, but we are very grateful for the relationships we built with our faculty and peers, and with one another. We met while pursuing our master’s degrees at Saunders College of Business, and were married three years later. RIT will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we are happy that our contribution to the annual fund helps make the RIT experience possible for future generations.”

I care about the annual Fund for RIT…
because giving back to the incredible RIT community, that helps you develop and achieve so much in such a short period of time, is the best way to ensure that such a great institution perseveres through all its endeavors and continues to give its students what they deserve — a proper higher education to prepare them for the future and all their personal endeavors.”

I care about the annual Fund for RIT…
because as the son of an RIT graduate and the father of one, I understand the intrinsic value of an RIT education. A top notch education and first class preparation for making a difference in the post graduate world. My wife and I have seen first-hand how hard work in the classroom and the RIT co-op program can create marvelous opportunities for any student. In addition, our son was a student athlete while an undergrad, and the time, effort, travel, and commitment we saw each of those young men and women exhibit was inspiring. Go Tigers!”
