More than ever in our lifetimes, it is clear that global health affects us all.
On June 17, Rutgers Giving Day, we came together as a community to support Rutgers students and faculty in confronting urgent global health problems, locally and worldwide. United by our passions and our persistent pursuit of health equity, Rutgers Global Health Institute joined the universitywide effort to “help Rutgers help the world.”
During the 24-hour Rutgers Giving Day event that raised funds and voices for Rutgers causes that give the world hope, our institute and supporters rallied from midnight onward. An early, unofficial tally shows that Rutgers Global Health Institute raised $10,850 from 168 donors. This includes $4,200 in matching gifts from members of the Rutgers Global Health Institute Impact Council. As additional Rutgers Giving Day results become available, we will update this page.
Thank you for your tremendous support, which includes your tireless efforts to raise awareness about global health and Rutgers Global Health Institute, in addition to your financial contributions.
Twelve volunteer ambassadors reached out to friends, family, and colleagues in their own personal and professional networks to encourage others to donate to Rutgers Global Health Institute. They are: Reena Antony, Jack Hemphill, Lara De Meo Hoyt, Arpita Jindani, Jodi Lynch, Richard Marlink, Rohit Mukherjee, Lori Riley, Angela Senger-Mersich, Kinnary Shah, Kim Swann, and Kara Wilson.
