We wish all our RIT donors and their loved ones the best, and hope you are all safe and healthy. While RIT is adhering to rules to avoid in-person events and activities, all supporters are invited to visit the alumni relations events website for a listing of upcoming virtual events that include career information, current events perspectives, and RIT alumni expertise.

Alumni Events

Many RIT friends and family have asked how they can help our students and the university during this global crisis. We are grateful for their concern. There is an unprecedented need for financial aid scholarships for our current and incoming Tigers. If you are able, we ask that you consider a gift to the university's Scholarship Fund, which assists students with tuition demands facing them and their families.

Support Financial Aid Scholarships

Whether you give $5, $50, $500 or $5,000, your gift helps the university support students, attract great faculty members, and maintain leading-edge academic programs.
