Partnering with the Campus Community.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com with any questions.
The Office of University Advancement collects and retains sensitive and confidential information for the purpose of cultivating and soliciting constituents. This information may include name, home, employment and biographical information, giving history, financial or estate plans and may be in the form of electronic or paper records and documents, or verbal communications. Members of the Drew community have access to confidential information only for the purpose of furthering constituent relations and/or the fund raising process. Information is not to be used for personal or commercial purposes or gain, or to be discussed or shared inappropriately in or outside the University. Because of the sensitivity of constituent information, all people who work with this information will be required to sign and abide by a Confidentiality Agreement. It is the responsibility of each person who has access to confidential information to take every precaution to insure that this information is secure. Always mark hard copies as confidential and the property of Drew University and dispose of by shredding in a timely manner. Electronic mail is not a secure communication medium and should be used carefully and only when there are no practical alternatives. Each constituent has the legal right to review any and all information that Drew has on file about him/her/it. Therefore, only factual or objective information and correspondence with the constituent should be retained on file. When information is requested by a constituent, the request will be referred to the Vice President of University Advancement. Confidential information may be shared with volunteers (i.e., people from outside of the Drew community) solely for the purpose of furthering constituent relations and/or fund raising programs. Each volunteer shall be required to execute a Confidentiality Agreement prior to receiving any confidential information and should be provided with a copy of the Confidentiality Statement each time they receive print or electronic information. Confidential information will never be released to any individual or group, except as required by federal, state or law enforcement agencies, for any uses other than constituent relations and/or fund raising process. This includes the sale of mailing lists and requests for locating a constituent. If one constituent desires to be in contact with another constituent, a staff member of University Advancement will either obtain written permission from the constituent in question to release contact information or provide the constituent in question with the necessary information to contact the requestor.
Employees of the University wishing to make annual contributions to Drew can spread out the payments through payroll deduction. Submit this form by the 15th of the month in order to have deductions begin during that pay cycle.
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.
To carry out this mission, the Office of Corporate, Foundation & Government Relations is responsible for:
The support of corporations, foundations and the local, state and federal government enables the University to strengthen its already academically rigorous and innovative curriculum, to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students, to undertake needed construction projects, to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology and to launch new programs meant to enrich the experience of all members of the Drew community. Contact us to learn more.
Faculty and administrators interested in pursuing grant opportunities, please contact Linda DeTitta for more information about the process and how we can support you. All proposals require an approved Grant Proposal Processing Form, which we will review with you and assist in completing.
In addition, you may wish to consult the following resources:
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
