24-Hour Give

Rochester College’s donor participation rate helps our ranking in US News & World Report, which means more partnership opportunities for RC faculty and students, more grant dollars for academic and service projects and a higher valued degree for our graduates.


CHALLENGE EXCEEDED: 24 hours. 150+ volunteers. 4,000+ phone calls. 277 donors. $192,651 raised for student scholarships.

Your participation supports our mission — to be a place where higher education serves a greater purpose and where a successful student can expect to enter the world with not just a degree, but a knowledge of how their education and faith will work together to positively impact lives, communities, and the world.
