Ends: September 11, 2019 at 12:00 pm
On September 10 at noon Rochester University will launch the 6th annual 24 Hour Give. The challenge this year is 300 donors within 24 hours. The Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team have committed $75,000 in gifts for the day and with the generosity and support of faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and community members we plan to come together for 24 hours of giving. We aren’t just asking for your money; our community is out serving and living out our mission during a service day at Crossroads for Youth.
The Rochester University story is impossible without you. Your participation supports our mission: prepare students for professional and personal success as they serve in God’s world.
With your participation, Rochester University will cultivate a diverse and welcoming community of learners among students, faculty, and staff for the sake of participating in God’s mission in the world. Learning together the way of Christ, we will serve in neighborhoods, businesses, and organizations with justice and mercy. Sharing life in the spirit of God, Rochester University graduates will contribute creativity, knowledge, and integrity to our rapidly changing world. It all starts with YOU.
