Rutgers Giving Day
March 24, 2021
On Rutgers Giving Day, March 24, Rutgers Global Health Institute will be asking for your support to confront health disparities in New Jersey, which have worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first $7,500 raised will be matched by members of the Rutgers Global Health Institute Impact Council and friends of Rutgers Global Health Institute.
The past year has changed everything. But we have forged ahead, and now we have an opportunity to create a brighter future—to innovate, to amplify marginalized voices, to share our knowledge and our resources, to improve the human condition.
We have created a program that is providing much-needed help to small businesses and nonprofit organizations in low-income communities. Minority- and women-owned businesses are facing especially dire economic circumstances. Our program, Equitable Recovery for New Jersey’s Small Businesses, offers free training and consultations pertaining to a safe workplace, as well as access to a variety of supportive services. The goal is to keep infections down, keep workers employed, and increase the chances that these businesses can survive over the long term.
Please consider supporting our campaign on March 24.
