Student Organization Opportunity
Rutgers Giving Day invites university-approved student organizations to participate in Rutgers Giving Day. You too, along with schools and programs, can have the opportunity to share information through individual campaign pages (see example to the right). You can build these pages to let potential donors know WHY your student organization needs the funding. Donations can support things like conference attendance, building enhanced programming, and so much more! It’s your decision. This is a platform for you to generate support for your big ideas! The excitement of Rutgers Giving Day brings together many gifts through a network of Rutgers alumni, students, faculty and staff, family, and friends. Donors will also be able to find these campaign pages from the main giving day landing site, but realize that it’s on your student organization to do your own outreach and recruit ambassadors to help you! Challenge money is up for grabs, so make sure your team is aware of all the daylong giving and social media challenges too!
Student organizations interested in raising funds on a dedicated campaign page will need to complete an application for review. Due to limitations in the Giving Day vendor contract, we are unable to offer unlimited campaign pages, so applications will be reviewed by the Rutgers Giving Day committee and prioritized based on strength of application, account verification, and past Giving Day performance, if applicable. All organizations must identify a minimum of 10 volunteer ambassadors in order to be considered.
