Gifts & Donations

Rutgers University Foundation is pleased to work with benefactors from around the world to increase private support for important research and programs. In doing so, the Foundation follows a careful process to review the sources of philanthropic funding and determine what, if any, expectations may be attached to such funding.

Donors of private funds should direct their charitable contributions to the Rutgers University Foundation. Donors and prospective donors may contact the Foundation via email at or phone 848-932-7777.

Per Rutgers University Donor Gift Policy 40.2.13, any University-affiliated department or individual receiving a charitable gift should forward the gift and all related documentation identifying the donor and the purpose of the gift to the University Controller’s Office (“UCO”). For the purpose of acknowledging a gift, the UCO will notify the Foundation of any gifts received directly by the University. University-affiliated individuals and departments soliciting gifts from domestic and international sources must report those solicitations to theRutgers University Foundation and/or the development office within their school, college, or unit.
