Planned Giving

Accept the challenge and leave your legacy for future generations of nursing students

The Challenge Process:
  • Documented planned gifts with a face value of $125,000 or more will be matched with $50,000 from the challenge grant. Matching funds may, at the discretion of the planned giving donor, either (i) create one new endowed scholarship fund to be named in honor of the planned giving donor or in such other manner as s/he may  direct, or (ii) be added to an existing School of Nursing scholarship fund.   Matches will be granted as funds are available from the challenge grant donor.
  • Documented planned gifts with a face value between $50,000 and $124,999 are eligible for a one-time current use scholarship to be awarded in the name of the planned giving donor or such other naming as s/he may direct from funds allocated from the School of Nursing’s existing scholarship pool.
