Annual Giving Programs at the University of Rochester

Annual Giving Programs touch every facet of the University and its Medical Center through a wide variety of initiatives. Click on an area below to learn more about how you can have an immediate and meaningful impact by supporting any of our more than 200 annual funds.


Rochester Loyal is the University’s new program that recognizes all donors who make annual fund contributions, of any amount, for two or more years in a row.


Alumni from across the University come together at Meliora Weekend to reconnect, reminisce and rediscover with their classmates and the University. The Reunion Class Gift Campaign is an important facet in the celebration of milestone anniversaries.


George Eastman Circle, the University’s premier leadership annual giving society celebrates gifts to any of the University’s schools and units. Members pledge at least $1,500 a year (for five years), to one or more University annual funds.


Directly connecting with alumni, parents and friends of the University of Rochester is done through a variety of methods including direct mail, the student calling program, email, publications, and online/social media.


The Parents Program provides support for all University of Rochester parents including coordination of student send-offs and other events linking parents with the University, communications, and parent fundraising.


The OneRochester campaign offers those who work here a meaningful way to support any area of the University or Medical Center. To learn more about how the generous support of faculty and staff is making an impact, please click here.
