Supporting RMU

Your gift matters.

Robert Morris University's highly-individualized approach to education gives our students the confidence to try, the freedom to fail, and the support to try again. In this way, our students learn to see their potential. More importantly, they learn to achieve it. It's this experience that has set RMU apart for over a century and none of it would be possible without the support of our donors. When you support RMU, you help to make a college degree more accessible and allow our students to focus on their studies rather than on how to make ends meet.

Ways of Giving

Gifts to the university can be made with cash or check, made payable to "Robert Morris University,” and can be mailed to Patricia Dempsey, Senior Administrative Assistant, University Advancement, Robert Morris University, 6001 University Blvd., Moon Township, PA 15108. 

Gifts may also be made by credit card, automatic debit, or electronic transfer. To make your gift click here. For more information, contact Heather Schermerhorn, Manager, Donor Relations, at or 412-397-6408.

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.
