Corporate and Foundation Relations at Rutgers - What's it all about?

Each year, CFR works to help Rutgers University meet its fundraising goals from corporate and foundation donors.  Annual totals reflect gifts of all sizes, but sometimes sizable awards are made that really boost the faculty's ability to fulfill Rutgers' three-part mission of teaching, research, and service in new and amazing ways - and we're always working to bring more dollars in the door for Rutgers!


Annual CFR Fundraising Totals

Each year, CFR helps bring millions of dollars to Rutgers University from corporate and foundation donors.  In fiscal year 2103, the university exceeded its goal of $40 million, bringing in nearly $53 million - that's almost a third more than we'd projected!  

This fiscal year, our goal has been raised to $45 million.  As of March 31st, we're proud to say that Rutgers has already accepted almost $39 million from corporate and foundation sponsors.  

Let's keep up the hard work and blow past our goal again this year!
