THANK YOU to EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for your support on 2Rπ Giving Day yesterday! We are truly grateful for the outpouring of support and participation from our community – whether you are alumni, family, faculty, staff, student, or friend. We are excited to share the news that we have exceeded our goal of 628 gifts – 766 to be exact – and raised more than $230,000! Together, you have truly made a difference for current and future generations of students.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to our generous supporters who provided matches and challenges for the day, including Trustee Paula Simon ’68, Lou Bellardo ’67, Jeremy Blackthorne ’15G, Diane Ozovek Howard ’82, and Nick Pinchuk ’68.
A big shout out to members of fraternities and sororities who supported the festivities through their participation, establishment, and promotion of Chapter Support Funds – including Sigma Phi Epsilon for their SigEp Chapter 2Rπ Challenge and Zeta Psi – to encourage donor participation and philanthropy on 2Rπ Giving Day.
As we “close the books” on this year’s festivities, we will be announcing the winners from yesterday’s competitions and challenges in the coming days, with final winners posted on our website. Please stay tuned for our final wrap-up in an upcoming alumni newsletter.
And – don’t miss your last chance to check out the Rπ Pop-Up Shop! There are less than two days left to visit the Rπ Pop-Up Shop and purchase limited-edition Rπ gear from our online merchandise shop.
For every purchase you make, $5 will go directly to support Rensselaer students through the Annual Fund. The shop officially closes at midnight on June 30 – so be sure to check it out before it’s gone!
Thank you again for your commitment to RPI!
