About Giving

The Rochester Annual Fund

Each year, when you join the thousands of University of Rochester alumni, parents, and friends in support of The Rochester Annual Fund, your gift is used to provide the kind of pacesetting, value- added learning opportunities that make the University of Rochester world-class.

The Annual Fund exists to meet the needs of undergraduate, as well as graduate, students by supporting their special educational and financial needs; providing seed money for the start-up of innovative programs and making funds available for "unexpected" opportunities to improve and enhance learning College-wide.

Through past support of this general purpose fund, our donors have recently made it possible to launch the College's new comprehensive Writing Center, provide initial funding for the Center for Future Health, increase the number of fellowships available for graduate students, and helped to create the invaluable new resource known as the Educational Technology Center, among many other things.

The Rochester Annual Fund is a part of everything we do. As we pursue our mission to be "always better", your annual gift is vital to replenish this most valuable resource.
