Planned Giving

A planned gift is one of several types of gifts that permit you to provide future benefit to the School of Nursing while meeting your current financial, personal and philanthropic goals. Planned gifts can provide significant tax benefits as well as lifetime income for the donor and even the family of the donor. A planned gift can be as simple as naming the UVA School of Nursing as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. 

Other planned gifts include retirement plan or life insurance policy beneficiary designations, charitable trusts and charitable gift annuities.

Whether you choose to provide funds for the School of Nursing's unrestricted use, scholarships, professorships, research, or any other area that matches your passion, your planned gift will provide a foundation for the future of the School, the nursing profession, and patient care.

Many nursing alumni and friends have chosen to support the School through a planned gift.

National Nurses Week

Do you work with or know an exceptional UVA-educated nurse who deserves special recognition? Acknowledge his or her compassion, professionalism and dedication with a gift to support education for 21st century nurses.

Every year, National Nurses Week – May 6 to 12 – marks Florence Nightingale's birthday, and celebrates the nation’s most trusted profession. At UVA, we use this time to recognize our outstanding nurses, alumni and students.

There is no better way to honor a nurse’s dedication, commitment and tireless effort, while at the same time supporting the education of future nurses.
