Supporting Career Development
A financial gift to the Greene Center can support student’s immediate career development needs, such as online courses and trainings, networking opportunities and conference attendance, as well as personal needs like professional clothing, interview travel expenses, or an internship stipend.
To discuss your interest in supporting our work, please contact Michelle Marks-Hook.
You can also direct your gift online to the Career Success Fund.
Throughout the year, you can also directly contribute to support students expenses while they gain experience through internships. Even if paid, there can be cost-of-living gaps for any student intern, particularly those interning in high cost-of-living areas or who come from economically strapped situations.
Your contributions to the REACH Internship Fund go directly to students, whether as an annual gift or an endowment.
select “REACH Internship Fund” as your designation
Annual Day of Giving
Held each year in early May, the Annual Day of Giving raises millions of dollars to support initiatives across the university and medical centers. You are welcome to select “Other” and write-in the Greene Center to support student career development, or select “REACH Internship Fund” to support students undertaking internships.
Supporting the Rochester community
In addition, we partner with many local Rochester organizations, who also have deep needs and shallow pockets. ROC the Day is an annual day of giving at the end of November for non-profits in the local Rochester area, some of whom employ our interns and graduates directly. Others are doing deep social justice work in our surrounding community, and working alongside us to advance equity and inclusion for all.
