Giving Opportunities

After determining the Douglass programs you would most like to support, please send your gifts to Douglass directly, made payable to Douglass Residential College. If you have additional questions contact Summaiyah Hyder in the Office of Advancement (848 - 932 - 3181), as the AADC no longer raises funds for Douglass. Your designation to Douglass ensures that your gift goes directly to the College and her students. Please note that the Rutgers University Foundation will process your gift and send you the gift receipt. 


There are five main funds available for gifts, which are described below. We can also work with you if there is another area of interest at Douglass for your charitable giving.


  • Where the Need is Greatest - the Dean's Excellence Fund - Your financial support will give the Dean much-needed funds for the college's innovative programs and student opportunities. Help empower Douglass students to claim their college education, to establish a place in the world and to pioneer the future.

  • Douglass Student Scholarship Support - Scholarships ensure that talented students have the financial support they need to achieve their dreams and fully immerse themselves in the Douglass experience.

  • Educating Women Global Leaders at Douglass - Douglass Residential College helps women become globally conscious individuals who can step into any role. Among the college's renowned international programs is the Global Village, a living-learning community where students work together to explore cultural topics.

  • Advancing Women in STEM at Douglass - Since 1986, Douglass Residential College has been at the forefront of helping women forge careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Its nationally recognized Douglass Project offers students enriching living-learning programs and hands-on undergraduate research opportunities.

  • The BOLD Center at Douglass - Leadership and Career Development for Women (Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development) - Provides the college's highly-regarded programs in leadership, mentoring, career and personal development. Women are empowered to make their mark from the moment they become part of Douglass by taking women's leadership courses and exploring the college's well-known externship opportunities, career conferences, and job skills workshops. The BOLD Center works closely with Douglass students to ensure they develop a personalized set of tools and skills to thrive and succeed, both during their time at Douglass and Rutgers and throughout their lives.
