Annual Giving

Your support of RIT each and every year is the heartbeat of the university. That’s because your annual gift, joined with the gifts of other alumni, parents, and friends, can be put to work right way in any area of the university—wherever there is a need. Your gift every year helps RIT provide a transformational experience to today’s students by closing the gap between tuition and the actual cost of operating the university each year.


An RIT education is crucial for our students to reach their goals, but it can often be challenging to see how supporting scholarships make a difference. 
We are committed to providing scholarships to all students, like Hassan, who need them. By giving students the resources they need, donors empower our students to manage their education, goals, and entire future.
