NJ State Employees Charitable Campaign


Dear Rutgers University – Newark faculty and staff members,

As the faculty and staff of a university that is as an anchor institution in Greater Newark and a vital partner in advancing the public good across New Jersey, collectively we make a positive impact locally and regionally through our work in countless ways every day.  That extends to our personal lives, too, as we embrace our roles as citizens in our communities, joining with our neighbors to make a difference from Millville to Mahwah.  We write to you at this time of year to encourage you to join with your fellow employees at RU-N and across the state to amplify that impact.

We hope you will consider making a pledge today to the annual New Jersey State Employees Charitable Campaign either via payroll deduction or a one-time gift.  You can choose the ways that your support can be put to work, for example, by assuring vaccinations for children from families facing financial struggles, providing free legal counsel to victims of domestic violence, mitigating environmental degradation, or helping create employment opportunities for homeless individuals.

We hope you will take this opportunity to leverage your donation with those of so many others statewide.  No amount is too small to make a lasting impact.

- Chancellor Nancy Cantor

Last year, the Rutgers-Newark community raised more than $28,000. The impact of these numbers is staggering, and yet the campaign and Rutgers can do even better. Your contribution will impact those in need – perhaps a neighbor, a student, or a friend. Thank you for helping to make this a successful campaign.
