The College of New Jersey Foundation, Inc. was established in 1971 to encourage private gifts in support for the College. As a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation, the Foundation is empowered to solicit, receive and administers gifts, grants, bequests and trusts for the benefit of the College, its students, faculty, schools, departments and programs. All private gifts from alumni, friends, private foundations and corporations, and other entities for the benefit of The College of New Jersey are received through the TCNJ Foundation.
Private gifts help TCNJ to maintain its distinction as one of the nation’s leading public colleges. The generosity of the College’s many donors helps to provide both need and merit-based scholarships; support for faculty members in their teaching and scholarly activities; leadership development and social change initiatives engaging students; athletics and more.
