Martina’s Wish Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) New Jersey charity dedicated to helping families with premature and seriously ill babies hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in New Jersey. A NICU stay is typically emotional, isolating, stressful, and expensive. Through individual and corporate donations, fundraisers, and sponsorships, we help families pay for non-medical expenses related to frequent visits to see their babies and help them to enjoy every precious moment they have with their children.
Through our Financial Support Program (FSP), we help families pay for non-medical expenses typically incurred with a NICU stay, such as transportation, food vouchers, parking, gas vouchers and lodging to help ease the burden of frequent visits to see their babies. We will also help families after being discharged on an as needed basis. This will include help with diapers, formula, clothing for the babies and any requests made by the families within reach.
Our FSP is targeted for families in financial need. If you are a parent of a baby in the NICU and are in financial need, we may be able to help you by simply submitting an application. Please click the PDF link below to complete the application.
Martina’s Wish Foundation strives to help as many families and babies in the NICU as possible. With our limited budget, Martina’s Wish Foundation is able to approve requests for support as our funds permit. Since each family’s situation is different in its own way the type and amount of support approved can differ for each applicant.
