Rutgers University Foundation

The Rutgers University Foundation is the fund-raising arm of the university. The professional staff of the Rutgers Foundation has helped the university's faculty, administration, and staff raise over a billion dollars since its incorporation in 1973.

The mission of the Rutgers University Foundation is to obtain private funds to meet important university 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.

A major universitywide fund-raising campaign was successfully concluded in June 2004. "The Rutgers Campaign: Creating the Future Today" raised $615.3 million in gifts and pledges from 91,175 individuals and organizations. The six-year campaign, the largest in the university's history, exceeded its $500 million goal by 23 percent. The funds are enhancing academic programs, providing scholarships and other financial aid, supporting research, assisting in faculty recruitment, and enriching the campus and community environment.

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 decisions 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.
