In light of recent law passed that will integrate UMDNJ with Rutgers and Rowan Universities as of June 30, 2013, we want to reassure you that the funds you have donated in the past, and will donate in the future, will be used to support the programs and purposes you have designated.
Wherever those programs may be located in the future, your funds will remain under the stewardship of New Jersey Health Foundation and its affiliates, which include the Foundation of UMDNJ and our new foundation, the Foundation for Healthcare Advancement.
To understand our commitment, you should know that our parent company, New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF), and the Foundation for Healthcare Advancement are both public charities incorporated in the state of Delaware, Both are independent organizations, not agencies of the State of New Jersey or the University.
The charter of New Jersey Health Foundation and its affiliates allows us to ensure that your gifts to fund breakthrough research, cutting-edge education and high-quality patient programs at UMDNJ will continue to be directed to those areas, regardless of where those programs reside. And 100 percent of your gift—every dollar—will be used as you designate.
Now is the perfect time for you to reaffirm your support of programs you may have funded in the past or to select a new area of research, education or patient care that you would like to support now or in the future. In this exciting time in healthcare, you can play an important role in advancing the important programs that mean the most to you.
We remain committed to working with you and others to advance the breakthrough science, excellent education and vital patient care programs offered in New Jersey. Please don't hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail to talk about opportunities. We hope to speak with you soon.
