Rutgers University Foundation

The Rutgers University Foundation is the fund-raising arm of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The Rutgers Foundation was incorporated in 1973 to support the university in obtaining private funds to meet important needs for which adequate monies may not be available from state, federal, or other sources. Scholarship and fellowship support for undergraduate and graduate students is essential, and academic programs seek the extra margin of excellence that only private giving can provide.

The professional staff of the Rutgers Foundation has helped the university`s faculty, administration, and staff raise over a billion dollars since its incorporation more than three decades ago. Private fund-raising in the 2000-2001 fiscal year totaled $123,302,686, an all-time yearly high.

Rutgers is now successfully concluding a major universitywide campaign designed to advance its academic growth as one of the nation`s top public universities. "The Rutgers Campaign: Creating the Future Today" surpassed its $500 million goal in June 2003, one full year ahead of schedule. The purposes of the campaign encompass attracting and supporting the best students, ensuring a superior academic program, advancing the quest for knowledge, and recruiting and retaining top faculty.

The Rutgers Foundation staff provides information about the full range of giving opportunities to donors and prospective donors, including individuals, corporations, and foundations. The staff also cultivates donors and potential donors through a variety of activities, helps donors make sound choices on how to give and the designation choices available to them, and ensures that they are properly thanked for their gifts. Fund-raising officers are also based in many of the university`s schools and colleges and work very closely with the foundation.

Persons interested in making contributions to any unit of the university or to Rutgers as a whole may do so by writing a check payable to the Rutgers University Foundation. The check should be accompanied by a brief note stating the designation of the donation and whom the gift is from. Checks should be mailed to: Accounting Department, Rutgers University Foundation, 7 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901-1261.

More information about private giving to Rutgers may be obtained from the Rutgers University Foundation, Winants Hall, 7 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901-1261 (732/932-7777). Donors may also contribute online by visiting the foundation`s web site,
