Extension of CARES Act Charitable Giving Incentives

On December 27, 2020, in response to the ongoing economic strain of the coronavirus pandemic, Congress passed and the president signed into law the COVID-19 Relief and Government Funding Bill, which extends through 2021 various cash charitable giving incentives included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security, or CARES, Act of 2020.

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey while accommodating your own personal, financial, and charitable goals. Philanthropic planning can assist various estate planning priorities including reducing taxes. Just as important, a planned gift is a meaningful contribution to ground-breaking research and patient care at Rutgers Cancer Institute.

We are working together to lead and shape the nation’s fight against cancer, and our progress requires your support. Your gift will help:


We live in a state that ranks among the highest in the nation for cancer incidence rates. With more than 100,000 patient visits annually, Rutgers Cancer Institute meets a critical need in our community. 


Our world-class scientists and physicians make cancer discoveries that have changed and will continue to change our understanding and treatment of cancer. We are the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state, conducting innovative research to improve early detection, prevention, and treatment.


Patients work together with their multidisciplinary team of specialists and become true partners in their cancer care. Our oncologists, surgeons, scientists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and nutritionists all come together with a common goal: to help individuals fight cancer.


As one of only a select number of NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation, and the only one in New Jersey, we provide patients access to the most advanced cancer therapies right in our community.

We offer New Jerseyans the tremendous benefits of outstanding and pioneering cancer care without the burden of traveling out of state.


Rutgers Cancer Institute is a place where students, residents, and fellows are trained alongside our world-class scientists and physicians; together they discover, develop, and deliver new cancer treatments to our patients.

We are a proud member of the Big 10 Cancer Research Consortium that allows our doctors and researchers to work collaboratively with peers at Big 10 universities to bring the most innovative care to our patients.
