Current Campaigns

The University of Rochester is inviting displaced college students from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to continue their undergraduate coursework in Rochester during the 2018 spring semester. You can help provide books, language support, health services, and more to our visiting students.

That’s equivalent to a cup of coffee, or a couple of music downloads. Trade those in just once this year, and make a gift to Rochester instead.

Trebellious Co-Ed A Cappella finally has the opportunity to put out an EP- or a short album- and you can help! Any donation you make will go toward our funds for creating an EP and improving our group as a whole.

Undocumented/DACAmented undergraduates at the University of Rochester are bracing themselves for a future riddled with financial challenges related to their immigration status. Community support is integral to ensuring that these students are able to remain in school.

Thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer in our region every year and it can leave us feeling powerless. But there is something you can do to help cancer patients and survivors locally.
