NJCU Annual Fund

  • Make a Difference in the Lives of NJCU Students!

    NJCU is committed to keeping tuition within the reach of our hard-working students. The NJCU Annual Fund encourages the financial support of alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and retirees in order to help NJCU students find the same opportunities for academic and personal growth as the students who came before them.

    Your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund allows NJCU to invest in bright, talented, and/or financially-needy students by:
    • Directing unrestricted funding toward the greatest unmet needs
    • Providing supplemental scholarships
    • Enhancing the quality of University programs
    • Supporting the library, the athletics program and/or each of the colleges
    • Underwriting technical services and upgrades across campus
    • Attracting and retaining talented, passionate faculty and staff.

    “As a graduate of NJCU, I am proud to support my alma mater. Making an annual fund gift every year is an opportunity for me to express my appreciation for the wonderful education I received. I believe that alumni play an important role in ensuring that NJCU continues to thrive and is able to provide meaningful learning experiences for future students.”

    “For generations, NJCU has provided the opportunity for an excellent education and I am among the thousands who continue to reap benefits from my degree. It is critical for all alumni to give to the Annual Fund so that NJCU may continue its mission, especially in this time of diminished support from state and federal governments.”
