Save the Date! Rutgers Giving Day

Save the date! On Tuesday, December 1, the first-ever Rutgers Giving Day, the Rutgers community will challenge itself to see how much support it can garner in just one day by participating in an exciting, action-filled, 24-hour fundraising event.

Rutgers Giving Day is a unique opportunity to show the world what we can do when we join together as alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, and students in the name of philanthropy and Rutgers pride.

Every online and over-the-phone gift given to the Libraries between midnight and 11:59 p.m. EST on December 1 will advance our position on a leaderboard of other schools, units, and programs throughout the university.    At the end of the day, a percentage of $20,000 in challenge funds will be awarded to each unit based on its position on the leaderboard.

The challenge funds are awarded based on the total number of gifts—not the total amount of money raised—so every single contribution, regardless of size, helps make a substantial impact on the students and faculty we support academically through our resources, services, spaces, and programming.

Visit the Giving Day website to donate and choose the area that you would most like to fund:

  • Special Causes and Student Programs > Rutgers University–New Brunswick > Rutgers University Libraries
  • Special Causes and Student Programs > Rutgers University–Newark > Dana Library
  • Special Causes and Student Programs > Rutgers University–Camden > Rutgers University Libraries

To add to the excitement, Rutgers Giving Day will offer hourly social media challenges on the Rutgers Foundation Facebook page, giving you a chance to win bonus money in support of the programs that matter most to you.

Don’t miss out!  Make an impact.  Give through Rutgers.
