Rutgers Giving Day 2021

Hi, Department Chairs and Center Directors.

Rutgers Giving Day will be Wednesday, March 24, 2021 and applications to participate are due on December 11. Rutgers Giving Day is an online 24 hour fundraising campaign that is driven by social media and email.

A department or center with an existing gift fund/project has the opportunity to become involved this year. Please note the deadline to submit the application to RUF is Friday, December 11, 2020. 

 If you would like to participate, then please submit the school and program application; one fund per department or center. NOTE: You will have the opportunity to review and edit your page in February, prior to the campaign launch.

AMBASSADOR REQUIREMENT: As part of your submission, we will be asking you to confirm a minimum of ten ambassadors who will be responsible for reaching out within their own personal networks to inspire support. Funds leveraging ambassadors have proven to be most successful year after year. All ambassadors will be invited to an ambassador webinar training in early March to ensure success. 

Kyle Hartmann, Public Relations Specialist from the Equine Science Center, and I will be offering a Rutgers Giving Day Best Practices presentation in early 2021 to assist you with maximizing this optional initiative for your unit.

Feel free to reach out with any questions and/or please forward to the applicable person in your unit. I am available via email at and by telephone at 848-932-3593.

All the best,
