Partnering with the Campus Community.

 

Campus Community Resources

Located in Alumni House, the Office of University Advancement works to support the mission of Drew University by engaging with and securing support, both financial and through volunteerism and affinity, from all of Drew’s various constituencies. Our various teams offer programs and engagement opportunities—as well as support for students, faculty and staff engaged in activities related to advancing the university—that build relationships between our constituents and the university, creating a culture of lifelong philanthropy and volunteerism.

Fundraising Support

If you are a department or student group and are planning a fundraising activity of any sort, please contact University Advancement at 973-408-3229 or giving@drew.edu in advance to make sure you are complying with university policy as well as Internal Revenue Service regulations. We’re here to help!

University Advancement is the university repository for all alumni and donation information, and can provide information for mailings, email blasts or other projects. All requests are subject to the policies and procedures of University Advancement and our Confidentiality of Constituent Information policy.

Please submit a request for mailing or solicitation data at least two weeks before the data is required, and contact Advancement Services at 973-408-3234 or adserv@drew.edu with any questions.

Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations Support

The mission of the Office of Corporate, Foundation & Government Relations at Drew University is to secure financial support from foundations, corporations and government agencies for programs and projects that advance the University’s various institutional objectives and priorities.

Donor Relations Support

Student Award Recipient Profiles

Student profiles are a great way for the donors who contributed to your scholarship fund to get to know a little bit about you, your academic and personal interests and what you are doing in your time at Drew. Most of our donors are alumni or former faculty and employees of Drew, so they take a special interest in your Drew experience.

Scholarship recipients are chosen by various campus committees, so donors generally aren’t involved in the selection process. Your profile is how they learn how their gift is being used.

Complete your student profile below. The survey consists of about 10 questions; answer them in a few sentences, about a short paragraph. Remember, there are no wrong answers!

You only need to complete one survey, even if you have received multiple scholarships.

Thank You Notes

Thank you notes are your opportunity to thank your donor individually and express the impact of your scholarship on your education. Thank you notes should be individually addressed to the donor(s) who funded your scholarship. This means you will need to write a thank you note for each scholarship you received.

Plan to attend one of our Student Appreciation Events for assistance writing thank you notes—we’ll let you know when these will take place. Stationery and pens are available to write personal thank you notes, or bring your laptop if you want to type it. If you need to get information about your named/endowed scholarship, please join us for one of these events.

If you are unable to attend one of our Student Appreciation Events, email stewardship@drew.edu for the information you’ll need to complete your thank you note.

Completed thank you notes can be dropped off at Alumni House on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., or sent via email to stewardship@drew.edu.

Hosking Scholarship Nominations

The William G. Hosking Scholarship was established in 2001 by a group of Drew University alumni in recognition of William G. “Billy” Hosking’s service to Drew University and its athletic department since 1983. It is awarded annually to one or more students who demonstrate financial need and who show high promise for contributing to extracurricular life. The recipient shall exemplify some of Billy’s characteristics, such as dedication, honor, commitment, care and loyalty to the University.

The Hosking Scholarship is a need-based scholarship, awarded annually to a returning student. The deadline has passed for applications for the 2017–2018 academic year.
