Planned Giving
Remembering CGE in your will creates a lasting memorial, providing us the means to provide assistance to our residents in perpetuity. Trusts, annuities, bequests, real estate, and all other types of estate-planned giving help to support CGE far into the future. Please call Pam DeLuca, Director of Development to discuss how you can arrange for your planned gift: (732) 247-7003, x352.

Honoraria and Memorials
Making a donation in honor of those you love is a touching way to remember and celebrate them.

Honor a special occasion with a gift that helps others. Cards are available for commemorating happy occasions such as Mother’s Day, birthdays, holidays, graduations, retirements; and milestones such as the birth of a baby, a job promotion, a new home, or any event that is special to you and your family and friends.

A memorial is a thoughtful way to remember a friend, loved one, or colleague. Make a one-time special gift in their memory, or establish a Memorial fund for family and friends to make a remembrance as well.

What to do
When sending a memorial or honorarium gift, please include the name and address of the person or family you wish to have us acknowledge. We will let the individual or family know of your thoughtful contribution. Please email info@cge-nj.org or call (732) 247-7003, x333. You can make your gift online above or send mail to us at:
