Giving to the School of Nursing

For UMSN to remain a leader in education, patient care, and research, strong financial support is essential. 

BSN Class of 2017 Bicentennial Endowment Fund

The undergraduate class of 2017 aims to establish an endowment to support undergraduate scholarships. Students recognize the invaluable support that they have benefited from and they want to have a fund that they can give back to over time.

There are two goals to support this endowment. We are asking every graduating student or family to donate $20.17. In addition, we are looking for four five-year pledges of $12,500 ($2,500 per year). These four pledges alone will allow us to establish an endowed fund.

In celebration of the university's bicentennial, the university will match 50% of funds raised when the endowment minimum of $50,000 is met.

Give a gift to the Class of 2017 Endowment Fund. 

To learn more, contact Stacey Doyle. Class of 2017 students Hassan Abbas and Alex Fauer are leaders in this initiative.

Endowed funds

The Terri Murtland MSN, CNM, Lectureship and Scholarship was established in Fall 2008 by Terri’s mother, Audrey Murtland. It is supported by Terri’s many family members and friends as a memorial to Terri who was an exemplary individual and midwife. The endowment provides an annual scholarship for midwifery students and an annual lecture. 

This is one example of a number of endowed funds that provide opportunities for School of Nursing researchers, faculty and students.
