The Rutgers University Foundation has been granted 501(c)(3) tax status by the Internal Revenue Service for the sole purpose of securing and administering private gifts for the benefit of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, with the approval of the University's Board of Governors and Board of Trustees. Governed by a Board of Overseers, which has the power, authority, and obligation to set fund-raising policies and oversee its operation, the Rutgers University Foundation is the exclusive channel for all gifts to the University from all private sources including individuals, trusts, estates, corporations, foundations, and organizations.

We build relationships with alumni and friends, corporations, and foundations and seek their support of Rutgers programs throughout New Jersey and the world. Our sole mission is to support Rutgers.
