This year's scholarship program made possible by:

Betsy Niles Scholarship
The Betsy Niles scholarship is offered in memory of Betsy Niles, a children's book editor and lifelong resident of Montclair. Betsy died in 2011 and, in keeping with her tradition of lifelong giving, her organs were donated. Betsy was known for always giving the perfect gift for every occasion. Betsy's last gift was the greatest gift of all, the gift of life.

Missy's Miracle Scholarship
Missy's Miracle was created in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Missy Rodriguez's liver transplant. The program directly supports scholarships to high school students.

Hearts for Emma
The Hearts for Emma Partner Fund was created to directly support The Hero Act through the production and distribution of educational materials and related programs teaching the importance of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

NJ Sharing Network Employee Giving Campaign
Our dedicated staff show their strong commitment and dedication to our mission through personal contributions to our employee giving campaign. As a result, our donation and transplant community has been able to experience so many impactful events and programs that have honored the gift of life.
