R Team is the new annual giving component of the Department of Athletic Development.
R Team is responsible for generating support to enrich the student-athlete experience at Rutgers University. The collective vision and financial contributions of our donors help R Team promote the mission of Rutgers Athletics and our student-athletes as they strive to earn degrees, become leaders, and win championships.
In addition to knowing that their support is reflected in the successes of Rutgers student-athletes, R Team members will receive benefits for their generosity.
Rutgers supporters become a member of R Team by contributing a minimum of $100 annually (July 1 to June 30) to any of the following funds:
Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund (SASF)
Gifts made to the Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund go directly toward student-athlete financial aid, which benefits all of Rutgers Division I sports programs.
Rutgers Leadership Academy
The Rutgers Leadership Academy program that equips student-athletes with the skills necessary to achieve success during and after their collegiate careers by providing them with opportunities for career, academic, and personal development.
Athletic Directors Excellence Fund
Unrestricted giving that allows the Athletic Director to allocate funding to the most critical department initiatives.
Sport Specific Fund
Funding that supports our individual sports programs. These funds help provide our coaches with a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining the best and brightest student-athletes.
