Last month, WRI participated in Rutgers’ 2nd Annual Giving Day, which coincided with a new national effort known as Giving Tuesday.  In total, the University received over $1,000,000 in donations from nearly 6,500 donors.  WRI ranked 8th among Rutgers-Camden groups, making it eligible for a proportioned share of $20,000 in challenge money, in addition to the contributions of individual donors.  All funds raised during the one-day donation drive will be set aside for WRI’s new Graduate Scholarship for Southern New Jersey Initiatives.

WRI extends its gratitude to the many individuals who gave of their finances, thereby enabling the cultivation of scholars dedicated to advancing research for South Jersey.  More information on the event is available from the Rutgers University Foundation.
