What We Do

The Rutgers University Investment Office manages a set of funds known as “the endowment." These funds come primarily from charitable donations raised through the Rutgers University Foundation.  

The Endowment

Endowment assets are critical to the university’s efforts to fund student aid, pioneer research, support innovative teaching programs, and create new technologies. The endowment is intended to provide Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, a permanent source of income beyond tuition and state funding to support its mission.
