Any donor who gives a minimum of $100 for two or more consecutive years will become a member. Recent graduates also will be included for membership into a sub-group of the society by giving consistently after graduation. Members will be recognized with their names on a plaque in the nursing building, in an alumni publication and on the College of Nursing Web site.
"The purpose is to encourage consecutive giving to the College of Nursing while promoting the importance of any gift, large or small," said Mark Alexander, director of development for the College of Nursing.
