Your gift to Rutgers effects real change in our community and the world

Thanks to every donor who made Rutgers Giving Day 2022 a success. On March 23, more than 8,000 of you came together to inspire one another, share their voice, and make a difference where it matters most right now. And as a community, we raised more than $3.3 million for funds all across the university.

And the opportunity to give extended beyond Rutgers’ vast alumni network to include donors from all walks of life thanks to the energized outreach and support inspired by ambassadors reaching out to their fellow peers.
