It’s no surprise that Rice was home to President John F. Kennedy’s famous “moonshot” speech. Rice Owls think big! Our faculty eagerly explore the unfamiliar and our students reach for the stars — and your gift will provide the "lift-off velocity" they need to excel.
Make your gift of $25 or more, to anywhere on campus, and we’ll thank you with a pair of limited-edition Owl socks. A small act of generosity today will make you look — and feel — out of this world.
When you give through the Rice Annual Fund, you’ll have a direct impact on the student experience by providing vital funds for scholarships, teaching professorships, residential college life and student research opportunities.
All households that make a one-time gift of $25 or more to anywhere at Rice University will be sent a pair of 2021 limited-edition socks to express our appreciation for your support. For donations under $56.50, the fair market value of the item will reduce the tax deductibility of your donation, in accordance with federal tax regulations. If you wish to decline receipt of a pair of socks and receive full tax deductibility for your donation, please indicate your preference by declining the gift on the online donation form. Socks are unisex. One size fits most. Actual socks may appear slightly different than illustrated above.
