Learn, Discover, Heal, Create—and Make the World Ever Better

Giving to the Hajim School

Gifts of any size to the Hajim School enrich the full spectrum experience for our students and faculty. They drive discoveries, applications, and models for engineering the future. They also play an important role in helping the next generation of engineers address and ultimately solve some of the biggest challenges facing the world today, including those in data science, healthcare, energy, and the environment. Your gift makes a difference.

Please consider joining the George Eastman Circle (GEC), the University’s leadership annual giving society. GEC gifts may be directed to the Hajim School’s Annual Fund, which provides the necessary ongoing resources to support our students, faculty, and programs. These gifts may also be directed to benefit a specific academic department of your preference.

Gift Planning

Making a planned gift can have a tremendous and meaningful impact—transforming the lives of future generations at the University of Rochester. Gift Planning can help you integrate your personal and family financial goals with your desire to support the Hajim School’s mission.
