About Our Donors

Donors who support the University of Rochester or one of its schools or units share a common characteristic—the desire to make a difference. Let some of our recent donors explain their commitments to the University in their own words:

Larry Bloch ’75
The University’s ability to thrive as a world-class institution—providing all of those wonderful benefits to our world—is contingent upon the support it receives from many contributors, including our alumni, parents, and friends. Giving to Rochester is a way of recognizing how much the University matters to so many. Learn more

Christopher Calo ’04, ’07 (MS)
