Scarlet Seniors

This campaign ends on May 17 at 11:59PM EDT

Hey Seniors!

We are excited to announce that we met our first milestone of 200 senior gifts! It looks like we are on fire Class of 2019!

Thank you to those that made their gifts to support the areas they care for the most - your gift is going a long way. Those of you that haven't made a gift just yet, what are you waiting for?! Join your peers in an effort that is bigger than all of us. 

I’m a Resident Assistant in Tinsley Hall on College Ave, a double major in History and English, and a member of the Scarlet Senior Committee Class of 2019. During our incredible Fall Fest event that kicked off the campaign, I gave $25 to the Student Leadership and Engagement Fund. This fund helps support student participation in alternative breaks, service retreats, and many leadership experiences for students in need. 

Making a senior gift to our class will help future generations of Rutgers students have greater access and better opportunities to learn and grow in their collegiate careers. 

Become Scarlet Seniors by making your gifts today!

All seniors that make a gift are invited to an exclusive Scarlet Seniors Donor Reception on May 2nd, at the new Alumni House (Van Nest). You will have the chance to meet and network with alumni and celebrate your class giving with a special toast - just for you!

Seniors that make a $5.00 recurring gift or a one-time gift of $25.00 are recognizes with a philanthropy cord to wear at graduation (these will be distributed toward the end of February. 

We are 1/5th of the way there, let's make this happen!

Scarlet Forever,
Samantha Contrini
