Help SASN Students Achieve Their Full Potential This #RUGivingDay

Wednesday, March 24, 2021 marks the sixth annual Rutgers Giving Day

On Rutgers Giving Day, SASN alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends join together in a 24-hour fundraising event to give back to programs that empower students to make change in the world. Dean Jacqueline Mattis shares her reasons for giving back in this video appeal. 

No gift is too small! The funds with the most donations of any size will receive additional money from the Rutgers Foundation, so even a $5 gift makes a big difference. We will be asking for your support for the following areas of need at the School of Arts & Sciences-Newark:

SASN Student Emergency Fund: Every year, the staff and faculty at Rutgers University–Newark work with 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. We are committed to helping our 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 these students so they can continue their studies uninterrupted.
