Rowan first to receive dollar-for-dollar match from State

Glassboro-On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Rowan University will be hosting a press conference to announce a major
gift to the university. The donor will be present.

For Rowan, the timing couldn't be better. The university will be the first institution in New Jersey to take
advantage of the recently passed Higher Education Incentive Fund Act. The legislation provides State
matching grants for private gifts raised by two- and four-year institutions that exceed $100,000 and $1
million, respectively. The intent of the new law is to provide an incentive for the state's 54 colleges and
universities to court private and corporate donors, making successful institutions less dependent on state
funding and tax dollars.
