Give to a
CON ANNUAL FUND of your choice:
The money received into these funds is spent each year for its designated purpose, so your yearly gift is vital!
ENDOWED GIFT? Elizabeth provides the information you need.
Unlike annual funds which are depleted each year, endowments are permanent gifts for the future. Such gifts are paid (unneeded insurance policies, appreciated stock, check, property, etc.) over a total of 5 years or less. In addition to the various forms of "cash" listed above, an endowment goal can be met through a willed/deferred gift or some combination of both.
The interest from the endowed gift amount is used to make its award each year. The criteria for the endowment's award is established by the donor(s) in a Gift Agreement with the Medical and Health Science Foundation and the College of Nursing. The Gift Agreement is the Foundation's promise to the donor that the award amounts will only be spent according to criteria set by the donor and that the original gift itself is never spent. Safeguarding the original gift amount is how awards can be made in perpetuity. Endowments are like a financial security blanket for CON; they help improve national rank because total endowment level is a measure of future financial stability. While each endowment is unique, MHSF endowments start at $25,000 and can be made for any amount above that. The three main categories are:
Research- provides great learning opportunities for our students while also improving healthcare in our region, state, and beyond. Research is required of all PhD students and faculty, but such provides vital opportunities for other students and faculty as well.
Scholarship- May be based on merit, financial need or combination. For example, a $50,000 scholarship would yield $2,000 every year. A full scholarship ($250,000) provides $10,000 annually.
Faculty Support- start at $25,000 you can also do a Distinguished Professorship for $333,000 which is matched by NC such that it awards $20,000 annually.
PLANNED GIFT? Giving through your
will, bequest, retirement plan, or charitable trust are a few examples of giving back to your alma mater in the future, but with no costs now. Becoming a member of the Leo Jenkins Society can be as simple as documentation from your will of the line where you include CON. We don't need a copy of your whole will!
NAMING OPPORTUNITIES- There are prime spaces (lobbies, auditoriums, simulation labs, suites, and faculty offices) within the CON as well as the College of Nursing itself. While an excellent partnership with a business, it is also a wonderful opportunity to honor or memorialize someone.
CORPORATE AND FOUNDATION SUPPORT- CON always seeks mutually beneficial relationships with corporations and private foundations for scholarships, research, and a wide variety of initiatives to meet CON's mission.
