Annual Fund

The strength of the Associate Alumnae of Douglass College lies in its ability to meet the needs of Douglass, her students, and her alumnae. Educational journeys and lifelong connections begin at Douglass and would not be possible without the service of dedicated volunteers and gifts to the Douglass Annual Fund.

Currently, the AADC is engaged in negotiations with the Rutgers University Foundation and Douglass Residential College. During this challenging period, and despite our demonstrated success in raising funds for the College, we are not permitted to solicit contributions to support Douglass Residential College or its students. We can, however, raise contributions for the AADC to support our work and help us arrive at a resolution that will be beneficial to all parties. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Ways to Give
Reunion Giving
Scholarship Support


Reunions are milestones—occasions for alumnae to commemorate their place in NJC and Douglass College’s history, reflect on what Alma mater has meant to them, and renew their ties with their classmates and the AADC. Reunion celebrations are also a time when classes focus their fundraising efforts to increase giving in support of today’s Douglass women.

The highest priority for reunion giving is unrestricted gifts to the Douglass Annual Fund. Since the AADC is an independent, self-supporting organization, we depend on unrestricted Annual Fund gifts to meet our daily and annual obligations of operating the Associate Alumnae and providing support to Douglass College students and alumnae.

All gifts given to the AADC during your milestone reunion year as well as in the four years preceding your milestone year, count towards your Class Gift. Class gift totals are announced during Convocation during Reunion.

The AADC provides more than $500,000 each year in scholarship and program support to Douglass students. These Scholarships, Fellowships, Prizes and Funds enrich the educational experience for Douglass students. The Annual Scholarship Dinner brings scholarship donors together with their students for a special evening.
