Why is giving back important to the Loewenberg School of Nursing?


Across the country, nursing programs are looking to expand their ability to respond to the deepening national nursing shortage.  The Loewenberg School of Nursing is no exception.  As state support of higher education continues to decline, your investment become increasingly important.  Partnerships with individual alumni, friends, businesses, corporations and foundations provide valuable support in the forms of supplements to the School’s annual operating and programmatic budgets.


By giving to the Loewenberg School of Nursing through the annual giving campaign or through special campaigns for buildings and programs, you help the Loewenberg School of Nursing continue as a leader in education and community health care. 


Why should I support the Loewenberg School of Nursing’s annual giving campaign?


Annual giving supports the “everyday needs” of organizations.  Resources are used to help support students and faculty, expand the technology within our labs and libraries, and provide for guest lecturers and programs that enhance our School’s service in the community.  Your annual gifts can be directed to support the students, faculty, or a specific program within the School.  Large or small, it’s your participation in the annual giving campaign is what counts most!


In addition to annual giving, there are several other ways to invest in the Loewenberg School of Nursing: 


Endowed Funds

A gift of $30,000 or more creates an endowed fund within the University of Memphis Foundation.  The principal of the fund is preserved and only the income from the fund is used to support the specified program or activity.  Over the years, Loewenberg School of Nursing donors have chosen to create endowed funds to support the academic programs, faculty professorships, and/or undergraduate and graduate student scholarships.


Bequest or Planned Gift

Designating all, or a portion, of your estate to the Loewenberg School of Nursing through a bequest or deferred gift commitment is another way to significantly impact the work of the School and leave a lasting legacy of your commitment to nursing education.  Bequests and planned gifts can provide significant estate, capital gains and income tax deductions, as well as life income opportunities.
