You can do something fast and simple today to strengthen RUSH.
It's true: RUSH relies on alumni and friends who make significant gifts in support of our students and programs. But we're not exaggerating when we say that every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference.
In fiscal year 2015, RUSH alumni made more than 500 gifts of $50 or less. In total these donors contributed nearly $20,000. When everyone participates, the collective impact can be profound.
Additionally, alumni participation affects RUSH's reputation: The percentage of alumni who make annual gifts, also known as the participation rate, is one way that we measure alumni satisfaction, and it's a metric that helps determine national rankings of colleges and universities. Ultimately, your donation to RUSH — of any amount — strengthens the value of a RUSH degree, including yours.
When you make your gift, you're giving a vote of confidence to the University and your college, showing your satisfaction with your degree, and ensuring that today's students receive the same opportunities you did.
