Rutgers Law School Celebrates Giving Day December 1

The Rutgers community will come together for 24 hours on Dec. 1 to give to the programs that donors care about the most and Rutgers Law School is no exception!

Rutgers Giving Day is an online fundraiser to rally alumni, students, faculty, staff and parents to support the university with a philanthropic gift. The goal is to raise $500,000 through 1,500 gifts or more, said Danielle Chirico, SAS ’12, assistant director of millennial philanthropy at Rutgers University Foundation.

The day is part of Giving Tuesday, an international campaign that began four years ago to encourage people to give back at a time when there is so much emphasis on spending around Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

On Dec. 1, donors can make a gift through GivingDay.Rutgers.edu and direct their contributions to the schools or programs that matters to them – from athletics and academics to special causes and scholarship funds
