Donors to Rutgers are exemplary. Many demonstrate a deep sense of loyalty, giving year after year. They know that the university is a driver of positive change, and that Rutgers students, researchers, and community leaders are pushing forward every day to better the world.

Making a gift to Rutgers, especially on an annual basis, generates hope where hope is needed most. For that reason, it is important to honor those who have given generously of their resources. With the close of the fiscal year on June 30, we want Rutgers donors to know how meaningful and powerful their philanthropy is.

During a year unlike any other in Rutgers’ history, donors and friends of the university stepped into the breach. With their annual gifts, donors ensured that our students could stay focused on their education and researchers could continue to have Big Ideas and make critical discoveries. They helped strengthen many crucial Rutgers programs. This spirit of giving ensures that Rutgers always will be ready to face the challenges that come our way.
