Ways to Give

When you support RPI, you help change the world.

The impact of your gift is felt each day by our students, whether it is through your support for scholarship and financial aid, student programs and activities, athletics, academic opportunities, research, and so much more.

By investing in the creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and its students, you are amplifying your own capacity to make a difference.


Supporters like you are making an impact through these urgent priorities and others:

  • Student Relief Fund – provides emergency relief for unexpected and unbudgeted circumstances and expenses  related to travel, access to technology, health and wellness.
