Support Rutgers English


We need your support! Donations from Friends go into our English Department fund, and allow us to develop new programs, expand our curriculum, and sponsor academic events, activities, and opportunities for students. If you’ve given to Rutgers English in the past, we ask that you renew your support. Help us remain one of the strongest departments at Rutgers and in the nation.

You can become a supporting Friend of Rutgers English in three ways. You can mail us a check directly using the form on this page. You can use a credit card and donate securely through our Alumni website. Or you can specify the English Department as the recipient of your gift when you pledge to the annual campaign. Donations can count as gifts toward your Class Fund too. All gifts to Rutgers English are tax deductible.

If you’d like more information about how you can support Rutgers English, or would like to set up a particular use for your gift, give us a call at 732-932-7612 or write us at
