Tigers, how loud will you ROAR?
It's RIT’s most philanthropic 24 hours of the year! As the official kick-off for RIT's annual giving campaign, on ROAR Day the RIT community comes together to give more than $120,000 to support almost 350 scholarships, academic programs, clubs, organizations, and more.
Also, thanks to the 24 Hour Matching Gift Challenge, it’s the best time to make even more of an impact. So mark your calendars for October 5 and let’s ROAR in 24!
While gifts to RIT are appreciated on any day of the year it is especially important that RIT’s generous alumni, parents and friends ROAR on October 5 in order to get RIT’s annual giving campaign off to a ROARing start and to ensure the impact of your giving is felt throughout the entire academic year.
When RIT students, faculty and staff make a gift on October 5 between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m., generous members of RIT’s Board of Trustees will match it.
Make your gift in one of these ways:
|SAU Quad||SAU Atrium|
|Infinity Quad||Erdle Commons|
|Global Village||Salsarita’s (opens at 11 a.m.)|
|Max Lowenthal Quad||Max Lowenthal Lobby|
|Sundial Quad||Grace Watson Lobby|
