NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – The Office of New Jersey Acting Attorney General Robert Lougy announced that the Division of Consumer Affairs concluded a case against Walker Cancer Research Institute.

The division had issues with Walker Cancer Research’s business practices, namely its fundraising activities – the allocation of direct mail campaign fundraising costs to program expenses, direct mail solicitations, and disbursement of contributions.

“This settlement brings closure to the division’s investigation of this charity in a way that protects the integrity of charitable giving in New Jersey and benefits cancer patients of all ages through additional funding for care and research,” Lougy said.

Walker Cancer Research will pay the division $95,000 in reimbursement for attorney’s fees and $375,000 as a voluntary payment to the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey to support cancer research in the state.

“The division keeps vigilant watch over the charitable organizations operating in New Jersey to ensure that they are following the law and applying contributions properly,” Steve Lee, acting director of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, said. “The division will act to ensure that contributions are being spent as charities promised and donors intended.”
