The seventh annual Rutgers Giving Day is Wednesday, March 23, 2022! Last year on Rutgers Giving Day, more than 8,400 donors gave nearly $3 million to areas across Rutgers.

Rutgers Giving Day - March 23, 2022

On Rutgers Giving Day, schools and programs across Rutgers raise money for specific funds and compete in hourly and leaderboard challenges to win award money. Last year, the Livingston Theatre Company raised $16,373, including award money, from 322 donors.

Each participating partner fund has its own campaign page and its own dedicated link to share with supporters. To ensure success, each partner needs to recruit a minimum of 10 Rutgers Giving Day ambassadors (alumni, students, faculty, staff, or friends) per fund to help spread the word within their own personal networks.

New fund and renewal fund applications are now open and have a December 10 deadline. Approved student organizations should submit the student org/club sport application.
