Impact of Legacy Giving

Jeff Harris '75 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. Join them. You too can make it happen for a RIT student.

By donating stock that has appreciated in value, you can avoid paying any capital gains tax on the stock you donate.
