Make Your Gift More Meaningful

Tribute & Memorial Gifts

Tribute and Memorial gifts are a powerful way to honor or celebrate a family member, friend, colleague, or remember a loved one. Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation will send a card to your loved one, friend, or colleague to let them know a gift has been made in their honor.

Transformational Gifts

When you make a major gift, you will change the course of pediatric care and research and save countless children’s lives. As you decide how to designate your major gift, our staff is here to assist. We can help you explore how your generosity can speed research from the laboratory to the bedside; support important new services for our young patients and their families; renovate or construct new facilities; or establish programs for the many kids we care for. For more information, please reach out to Elena Herskowitz, Director of Individual & Family Philanthropy, directly at 908-301-5462 or by email at

Plan a Gift to Last a Lifetime

When you extend your support of specialized care for children by including a gift in your estate plans, you will make a lasting impact for children and families going through some of the most difficult times of their lives. There are many ways to make a meaningful gift – and many gifts that offer benefits to you as well.

Heritage Society

When you remember Children’s Specialized Hospital in your will, you become a member of your Heritage Society entitling you to special recognition and benefits. Many of our donors have thoughtfully made provisions for Children’s Specialized Hospital in their estate planning. By becoming a member of the Heritage Society, you will ensure that Children’s Specialized Hospital will continue to bring quality health care to our community.
