A lasting legacy for health care


Giving Blueday: One day. 24 hours.

The U-M School of Nursing would like to thank the generous donors who made U-M's Second annual Giving Blueday a success. While final donations are still being tallied, U-M reports nearly 7,000 donors made gifts to U-M totaling about $4.36 million.

The School of Nursing received an anonymous $1 million gift for student scholarships, $50,000 to support work with victims of human trafficking, plus donations to support school and student needs. "We appreciate every gift," said Dean Kathleen Potempa. "We have special gratitude for the donations that are a lasting legacy for the future of nursing and health care." 



With your support, we will continue to give our talented students the support, knowledge and skills they need to be the next generation of nursing leaders, recruit and retain top-level faculty, and be a positive force in the frequently changing and often complicated world of health care.

The University of Michigan School of Nursing has a unique opportunity to make important contributions to the nursing profession and to health care. To remain a leader in education, patient care, and research, it is essential to provide strong financial support to our students and faculty. Funding for endowed chairs, faculty positions and research helps us attract and retain premier faculty. Student scholarships and grants can provide financial assistance to the best and brightest students.
