What is RowanGIVES Day?

Today marks our sixth RowanGIVES Day—Rowan’s annual day-long event that celebrates the generous spirit of the Rowan University Community. Each year, this event unites alumni, faculty, staff, parents, friends and students from Rowan’s three campuses to recognize the amazing impact that giving has on the University.

<strong>New Jersey Alumni Challenge</strong>

Challenge 6

New Jersey Alumni Challenge

What area of NJ has the most Alumni support?

Designations

As a New Jersey public research university, we recognize that our alumni may not see eye-to-eye on everything. Is it Taylor Ham or Pork roll? Sub or Hoagie? Sprinkles or Jimmies?

We even may disagree on where the borders of North, Central and South Jersey are, but we can all agree that —and thus the New Jersey Alumni Challenge was born.

This year, we’re challenging alumni to indicate their county of residence when they make a gift. The region with the most donors wins bragging rights as the most generous region—and an additional $500 in challenge money to the Rowan Rising Campaign will be unlocked:

  • North—$500 to Student Scholarships
  • Central—$500 to New Discoveries
  • South—$500 to Learning and Living Environments that Inspire
