About the Foundation

By providing the bridge between donors and the schools and programs, faculty, and students that make up the university, it helps match caring people with satisfying and meaningful opportunities to make gifts that have an impact on Rutgers and beyond.

It is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization whose sole mission is to support the Rutgers community. Gifts made through the foundation are deductible for federal income, gift, and estate tax purposes.
