Snider-Irving Giving Challenge Results
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, the Snider-Irving 60th Anniversary Giving Challenge raised $136,000 in support of nursing education. Professors Emeriti Dr. Jo Snider and Jodi Irving — who have dedicated more than 50 years to teaching thousands of Gator Nurses announced that they would match all gifts up to $10,000 between August 8 and Sept. 10 to celebrate the UF College of Nursing’s 60th anniversary. Halfway through the challenge, an anonymous donation of $50,000 was added to the match amount to make it $60,000.
