Ready to Think Bigger? On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, Rutgers will host its annual Rutgers Giving Day. This 24-hour initiative takes place across all of Rutgers. Last year, more than 7,230 donors gave $1.36 million to hundreds of funds across the university.
Ambassador only submission form:
You have confirmed that you will be highlighting the same fund(s) as you did last year within your program or area. Along with your campaign page review, you are required to submit your new list of ambassador names and contact information (10 minimum) for this upcoming campaign by Friday, December 20. (Note: ambassador names should not be duplicated for more than one fund to ensure the most success.)
Questions? Email Givingday@ruf.rutgers.edu.
Consider whether you have a donor who would match gifts to your fund(s) on Giving Day, or who would issue a challenge (e.g., John Smith, MGSA ’70, will match the first $10,000 raised to the MGSA Scholarship Fund). Data from past years shows that programs featuring a match or challenge typically outperform those that do not. Deadline for confirmation of a match is March 1, 2020 by email to Amanda.Catherall@ruf.rutgers.edu.
As in previous years, donors will be able to support any fund not listed on the Giving Day site through the “other” option.
Schools and Units that intend to send out mail through Marketo on the day of Giving Day are required to attend a Rutgers Giving Day open house, which will be held in February 2020 (more details to follow).
Rutgers Giving Day applications are closed at this time. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to participate next year.
