Philanthropic contributions enhance the quality of legal education at Rutgers School of Law–Newark. The generous donations we receive support financial aid, including scholarships and loan repayment assistance, faculty support for research and centers, the law library, and the clinical program, as well as public service, student organizations, and new initiatives.
As New Jersey’s premier public research university, Rutgers derives part of its revenue from state appropriations. However, since 1989 students have paid an increasingly larger share of the costs of a Rutgers education. Even prior to the current financial crisis, New Jersey is one of only four states in the nation to see a reduction in state appropriations for colleges and universities. Now more than ever, your support is crucial. Please read on for The Case for Rutgers School of Law–Newark and see how you can give back to the law school.
We thank our alumni and friends for their generous support. View the names of donors who made gifts between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013. Please call 973-353-5094 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if your name is missing.
The Rutgers University Foundation is the fundraising arm of the university. The Rutgers University Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Gifts made through the foundation are deductible for federal income, gift, and estate tax purposes. Like other public and private institutions, 5% to 10% of all gifts, depending upon the size of the gift, is used to fund further advancement efforts on behalf of Rutgers.
The law school, together with Rutgers School of Law–Camden, recently launched the Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance. An important constituent of the Center is the Alumni Steering Committee, charged with providing the critical linkage between the Law School and alumni community; planning, preparing and participating in Center events and programs; and assisting in placing students in internships, externships, summer jobs, and full-time employment. To help us fund the Center, we are asking alumni who join the Steering Committee to make an annual contribution ($1,000 for alumni who graduated more than 5 years ago; $500 for those who graduated less than 5 years ago). A pledge/contribution form can be found here.
