Click to EnlargeThe Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund (DFSMF) was established in 1978 in memory of Deborah Sager who passed away that same year.

In 2012, the DFSMF provided a donation of $250,000 to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Inspira Medical Center Vineland. In recognition of the gift, the specialized unit was named in Deborah’s memory – The Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. To continue to support the neonatal and pediatric departments, the DFSMF has raised more than $150,000 from donors over the past few years, allowing the fund to continue to support the much needed care for children in need.

At the entryway of the NICU you will find a recognition plaque, entitled “A Pathway to Miracles,” acknowledging gifts to the Fund. There are five levels of giving:
