Planned Giving

Nurses are positioned to advance health equity and improve health outcomes in the future. I had the great privilege to learn these ideals during my education at Columbia University School of Nursing. I want to support the ability of future generations of nurses to receive the same education and values.

Anna C. Maxwell Legacy Society

The Anna C. Maxwell Legacy Society was established to recognize and thank those alumni and friends who provide for Columbia University School of Nursing in their wills and estate plans. Columbia Nursing is extremely grateful and appreciates the impact these gifts can make and the legacy that they leave behind.
