Make a Gift

Giving to the University of Rochester

Meliora ChallengeIf there is anything that surpasses the pleasure of giving, it lies in knowing how much the gift means to the recipient. Your generous support affects people’s lives in a direct and immediate way, whether providing financial aid to attract and retain the brightest and best students from all backgrounds, health care for uninsured patients, or funds that enable a researcher the means to develop therapies to aid people in our community or across the world. In this challenging economic time for our nation, your gifts are especially important and make a real difference in the lives of those the University serves.

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.
