Ways To Give

Each and every gift makes the difference in the lives of the families we serve. Philanthropic contributions allow us to provide financial support—including rent, car payments, insurance, utility bills and childcare expenses—to families of children with life-threatening illnesses receiving treatment at the Hackensack Meridian Health Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital. 

Your gift unites families so that children never have to face a hospital stay alone.
 

There are many ways to support our organization:
 
Cash: Use our online donation form or mail a check payable to The Jillian Fund to PO Box 582, Montvale, NJ 07645. Gifts can be made in honor of or in memory of individuals. 
 
Gifts of Appreciated Securities: Please contact Executive Director Liz Campbell at liz@thejillianfund.org or (201) 834-6625 for more information.
 
Planned Gifts: Planned gifts are a wonderful way to ensure a legacy for our organization. If including us in your will, please include both the full name and address of the institution (The Jillian Fund, PO Box 582, Montvale NJ 07645), to avoid any confusion.  There are several options for planned gifts, including annuities, charitable trusts, and gifts of life insurance, that may provide significant tax advantages to you and/or your beneficiaries. If you are interested in learning more about planned giving, or have included The Jillian Fund in your estate planning, please contact Liz Campbell at liz@thejillianfund.org or (201) 834-6625.

Matching Gifts: Many corporations have matching gifts programs that can double or even triple the size of your gift. Please check with your (or your spouse's) human resources department to see if your gift is eligible for a match. Normally, the employee submits initial paperwork or completes an online form; The Jillian Fund will handle the rest of the process, and you will be notified when we receive your matching gift.

Gifts from an IRA: If you are older than 70 1/2, you can donate up to $100,000 from your IRA to a charity tax-free. Donors do not receive an income tax charitable deduction; however, this provision allows donors to transfer money from their IRAs without having to recognize the transfer as taxable income. Please consult your tax advisor for information about your specific situation.
 
Gifts-in-Kind: Donations of goods and services can benefit our organization. Please contact us before making a gift-in-kind to ensure that the gift can be utilized.
 
Gifts of Personal Property: If you are interested in making a gift of personal property, such as real estate, please contact us for more information.
