Why Give

Your gift to RIT matters! Whether you give $5, $50, $500 or $5,000, your support impacts RIT for the better. By making a gift each year to RIT's annual fund, you help the university support students, attract great faculty members, and maintain leading-edge academic programs.

Now more than ever, your gift is important to make a great experience for all RIT students. You may direct your gift to any area of the university - your college, your school, your department, or a specific need. Or, you may make your gift unrestricted to support the university's ability to respond to needs as they arise. It's your gift, and what it supports is your choice.
