Rochester College’s ambitious one-day fundraising event, 24-Hour Give, ran from noon on Tuesday, July 25 through noon on Wednesday, July 26. The Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team committed $150,000 in gifts for this campaign and with the generosity and support of faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and community members we raised an additional 32,396 for a grand total of $182,396 raised in just 24 hours!
24-Hour Give kick started the 2017-2018 academic year financially, providing funds for student scholarships, engaging students in various activities and events, and continuing the education of students who will one day graduate and continue being servant leaders in communities all over the world.
A big THANK YOU to all our volunteer callers and to our donors that made the 24-Hour Give challenge a success. The work we do at RC could not be done without your support.
