Volunteer for the Rensselaer Annual Fund

Patroon Society Volunteers

The Leadership Gift Committee is made up of alumni who support Rensselaer at the leadership level and who work to solicit additional leadership gifts. A leadership gift makes a major contribution to bridge the yearly gap between tuition and the full cost of a high-quality technological education. The role of the leadership gift committee volunteer is to increase alumni participation at the Patroon level of $2,500 and above each year.

weR Gold Volunteers

More than 50 members of the alumni community assist in the operations of weR Gold. Selection committee volunteers play a pivotal role in deciding which student groups will be featured on the crowd funding platform. Additionally, members of the Executive Committee meet monthly to provide feedback, strategize about marketing and communications, and develop program enhancements.

Reunion Volunteers

Each year, Rensselaer celebrates Reunion and Homecoming on campus in Troy. Prior to these milestone celebrations, class committees form to inspire their peers to give to Rensselaer in honor of their Reunion and class. Volunteers work together and with Rensselaer staff to solicit classmates, encourage people to return to campus for the weekend, and claim victory in one of the class giving competitions!
