Board of Overseers

Created in 1973, the Rutgers University Foundation enhances Rutgers' mission of excellence in education, research, and public service. It has raised more than $1 billion over the last three decades.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Overseers, which consists of a maximum of 75 members, 19 of whom must be members of the university's Boards of Governors and Trustees or ex officio members.

The Rutgers University Foundation is a New Jersey corporation established under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code for educational and charitable purposes. Gifts made through the Foundation are deductible for federal income, gift, and estate tax purposes to the extent allowed by the law.
