On October 13, the University of Florida launched the public phase of its Capital Campaign—a fundraising initiative to raise significant philanthropic support for strategic priorities over an eight-year period. The campaign goal is $3 billion. With the latest news that UF is ranked as a top 10 public university, there has never been a better time to invest through UF, knowing that doing so can have a profound impact on the issues that matter most.
The ultimate goal of the campaign is not dollar figures but the impact that philanthropic support can have on those we serve.
The campaign launched silently in 2014 and will conclude in 2022.
The College of Nursing has a $22 million fundraising goal and has already raised $8 million toward that goal. Among the top goals and priorities for the college’s campaign are:
- Center for Palliative Care Research and Education
- Innovation and Learning Laboratory
- Archer Family Health Care
- Faculty Support (endowed professorships and faculty development)
- Student support (scholarships and fellowships)
In the last capital campaign, which concluded in 2012, the College of Nursing raised $16 million.
Every gift, large or small counts. While a $100,000 donation can endow a scholarship, a $25 donation can help offset the cost of a textbook for a student or medication for a patient. Visit http://alumni.nursing.ufl.edu for more information on how you can help or email firstname.lastname@example.org
