Supporting RMU

Your gift matters.

When you support RMU, you help to make a college degree more accessible, through scholarships that let students focus on their studies rather than on how to make ends meet.  You also help to make every RMU degree more valuable, by raising the university’s stature in national rankings of alumni engagement.

Ways of Giving

Cash or credit donations: Gifts to the university can be made with cash or check (payable to "Robert Morris University"), or by any major credit card.

Monthly draft: Authorize an automatic draft from your checking or a credit card account on a monthly basis and spread your gift out over the fiscal year.

Payroll deduction: Employees of RMU can have the Payroll Department deduct a monthly contribution to the university from their paycheck.

For more information, contact Jennifer Young, Director of Annual Giving, at or (412) 397-5452.

Major Ways of Giving:

Cash: Cash gifts in the form of checks or money orders shall be made payable to Robert Morris University and shall be delivered to the Office of Institutional Advancement. Gifts may also be made by credit card, automatic debit, electronic transfer, and RMU payroll deduction in accordance with university procedure. For more information, contact Joshua Diller at or 412-397-5453.

Securities: A viable alternative to a cash gift is a gift of appreciated securities. If you have owned the stocks or securities for more than one year, you are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift to the fullest extent permitted by law. For more information, please contact Rose Jandrasits at or 412-397-6429.
