During this extraordinary time, 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, including personal meetings, all supporters are invited to visit the Tigers Staying Home website. There you will find a list of upcoming virtual events that include career information, current events perspectives, and RIT alumni presentations. You will also find news updates on Tigers involved in the COVID-19 fight, and a host of RIT-related resources to keep you busy while you and your families stay safe at home.

Tigers Staying at Home

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. If you are able, we ask that you consider a gift to the university's COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund, which assists students with unforeseen expenses such as off-campus apartment deposits and rent, healthcare, transportation, and especially laptops and technology assistance so students can complete their coursework out of the classrooms.

Support the COVID-19 Emergency Fund

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.
