Planned Giving

Planned giving is the key to ensuring a strong and promising future for health care delivery in the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) tradition… and a very special way you can support the work of the Hospital with a bequest in your will, a charitable gift annuity or trust, a gift of real estate or life insurance, or a gift from your retirement plan.

It may also enable you to make a much larger gift than you ever dreamed possible. In addition, the returns from certain life-income plans can help you to transform low-yielding investments into a new source of income.

Most of all, a planned gift is a wonderful way to truly make a difference in the lives of patients and their families… and a wonderful way to create your legacy for the future.

Individuals who participate in The RWJ Foundation’s planned giving program are invited to join The Wells Society. The Society was created to honor Grace Tileston Wells, whose generosity and forethought resulted in the establishment of the Hospital’s first building in New Brunswick, NJ.

By becoming a member, you will join with others who recognize the important role of RWJUH to the future health of our community and who support the Hospital’s four-fold mission: excellence in patient care, outreach to the communities we serve, research into the causes and cures of medical problems, and education of the next generation of caregivers.

Please consider making a gift to The RWJ University Hospital Foundation today, or contact us for more information about our planned giving program.
