Founded in 1977 as the Jersey City State College Development Fund, Inc., the Fund became the NJCU Foundation, Inc. in 1998, reflecting the institution’s new name and University status.
Working with the Office of the Vice President for University Advancement and the Development Office, the NJCU Foundation solicits and receives gifts from alumni, friends, parents, business leaders, corporations, foundations, faculty, staff, and retirees. Donors to the NJCU Foundation make an investment in the University’s future through charitable contributions. Gifts made to the NJCU Foundation, Inc. may be made in cash, stock, securities, real estate, and personal property, and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.The NJCU Foundation has been designated by the New Jersey City University Board of Trustees to solicit, receive, hold, and manage funds and property on behalf of the University.
The NJCU Foundation will hold the ground lease for the 21-acre property that is currently being transformed into NJCU's West Campus, an ambitious expansion project that will become a mixed-use "University Village.” The NJCU West Campus will undoubtedly become a source of economic stimulation and job creation for Jersey City and will be among the catalysts for the overall redevelopment of Jersey City’s West Side neighborhood. The project will also be an example for “Smart Growth” within the region, providing a higher quality of life through open space, clean air, and clean water. The NJCU Foundation takes great pride in its involvement.
