Give Over Time

Recurring Gifts

Recurring Gifts are an easy, automatic way to support RIT that works for your budget and schedule. It is convenient, customizable, environmentally friendly, and helps ensure a steady source of funding for RIT.

You can set up your recurring gift by credit card now, or the next time you make an online donation, by choosing "Perpetual Gift" on our gift form.

Once you have entered your payment information and submitted your recurring gift, RIT will automatically deduct gifts from your credit card according to the amount, frequency (monthly or annually), and duration (the total number of payments) you provide. And don’t worry—your online donation is secure and flexible.

Pledges

Making a pledge is a promise to make a gift at a later time or over time. To make a pledge to RIT, visit our online gift form and select "Scheduled Gift," where you can choose the number and schedule of your pledge payments. If you want your scheduled payments to continue until you say "stop," you can schedule that in the "Perpetual Gift" area.

If you have already made a pledge, thank you! You can pay your pledge online through our secure payment form. Visit rit.edu/pledgepay to make your payment now. 

Planned Giving

Planned giving offers creative strategies for alumni, parents, and friends of RIT to make a gift to the university while also achieving some of their own financial goals. The choice to support RIT is a personal one, unique to each individual, and the choice of planned giving options is the same. Your individual financial situation and goals, your family structure, and your interests at RIT can all be taken into account through one of several gift options.
