Give today and help Rutgers help the world

Help SASN Showcase the Power of Community This Rutgers Giving Day

On March 23, 2022, Rutgers holds its annual Giving Day–one day when the entire Rutgers community comes together to support students, programs, and causes across the university. It’s your chance to support the School of Arts & Sciences‑Newark and to help create pathways to a brighter future at Rutgers.

The SASN Emergency Fund was established in 2020 to help students who are facing unforeseen life‑changing emergencies such as accidents, illness, medical crisis, death of a primary financial caregiver, fire damage, eviction issues, homelessness, and other disruptive life events. SASN is committed to helping students overcome such challenges and stay in school. With your help and generosity, we will be able to increase the emergency funds available to help students so they can continue their studies uninterrupted.

SASN's Dean Jacqueline Mattis shares why its important to give in the video below. 


Here’s how you can make an impact before midnight:
