Honor and Memorial Gifts

In this fight against cancer, there are many people to recognize.  Many individuals choose to make a gift in honor or in memory of a friend, a family member, or a loved one for their own cancer journey or their work or support for others.  Gifts in honor or memory of another are considered a great honor at Rutgers Cancer Institute, as the honoring of one person is used to positively impact the lives of others.

Memorial Wall

When a loved one passes, families may choose to have gifts directed to CINJ in their memory. When memorial gifts total $2,500 or more, families may elect to include the name of their loved one on the Memorial Wall – a series of frosted glass panels which surround the main atrium stairway at Rutgers Cancer institute. Traditionally held on the first Friday of November, family and friends are invited to a reception and dedication celebrating those who were most recently added to the Memorial Wall.
