The Saunders Challenge:

Unparalleled support for a new vision

Phil Saunders

“It is my goal to further energize RIT’s position as a center for entrepreneurship and innovation.”   Phil Saunders

E. Philip Saunders, namesake for Saunders College of Business, has witnessed firsthand the incredible talent and energy our students bring to their studies, their research, and their entrepreneurial efforts. His belief that Saunders College stands to become a center of entrepreneurship and innovation for the next generation of business leaders led him to commit $5,000,000 to the college in 2010.

He has now set a challenge before all Saunders alumni and friends to come together to raise a total of $20 million to support the college's visionary plans. Mr. Saunders' gift is a 1:3 matching gift to help reach this goal.
