Gifts Make RIT Signature Events Possible

May 2 marks the seventh annual Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival, when 30,000 people descend on the RIT campus to learn what’s new, now, and upcoming in the fields represented by RIT’s academic and cultural communities. A free public event of this size and scope couldn’t happen without gifts to offset the cost of operations, marketing, and activities the day of the festival.

Since the beginning, RIT alumni have helped to make the festival a success. Many RIT alumni have supported Imagine RIT each year by becoming sponsors through their companies. Datto, Hammer Packaging, Bartholomew Healthcare Group, Freescale Semiconductor, and Info Directions Inc., are just a few of the companies with deep Tiger ties that have been official sponsors of the festival.

Other signature events that are made possible through alumni support include the Presidents’ Alumni Ball during Brick City Homecoming, the annual Entrepreneurs Conference, and several Dean’s Lecture Series in RIT’s colleges.
