Sustaining Donor

"RIT had a huge impact on both of our lives. We select a specific cause to give to each year knowing that it will have a positive impact."

—Sheila Chabot ’05 (Media Arts and Technology)
—Matthew Chabot ’07 (Electrical Engineering)

Sheila and Matt Chabot chose to become Sustaining Donors. An amount that they chose is charged to their credit card on a regular basis until their giving goal is reached. They can also decide to have their recurring gift continue until they ask to stop. It’s an easy and effective way to give.

Thanks to the Chabots’ gift, a scholarship fund that they support grows…more students get aid…Sheila and Matt get a tax deduction and the pride of knowing they gave what they wanted to give.

Why Should YOU Join Sheila and Matt and Become a Sustaining Donor?

You decide how much to give and for how long. An amount you choose is charged to your credit card monthly, quarterly, or annually. You can decide to have your recurring gift continue until you ask to stop. Sustaining Donors make a commitment to give to RIT each and every year for 5, 10, 15 years, up to your lifetime!

It’s an easy, secure, and efficient way to give. Gifts are automatically and securely deducted from your credit card on a regular basis cutting down on waste and lowering the number of requests for support you receive each year—increasing the impact of your gift.

Your recurring gift can help provide sustained resources needed to educate and develop today's RIT students into tomorrow’s innovative leaders. The collective power of your gifts is realized across the RIT campus—from students attending because of gifts to the General Scholarship Fund to state-of-the-art classrooms that enable promising student entrepreneurs to turn ideas into cutting-edge products thanks to gifts that support the Area of Greatest Need, the impact of YOUR generosity is HUGE.
