Annual Fund

“My gifts are a small way for me to pay it forward so that other nursing students can have the same opportunities as my child.”

- Lisa Burmester, parent of Katie Burmester, RN, (BSN '19)

Each day at the University of Michigan School of Nursing holds an incredible opportunity to join with researchers, practitioners, students and faculty who share a vision for excellence, boldness and forward thinking. Our student population is poised for leadership, and our scientists are positioned for great discoveries. Thoughtful donors like you make all of this possible. 

Your decision to make annual gifts to the Funds for the School of Nursing impacts lives every day. Your annual gifts provide vital support for ongoing needs as well as emerging needs.  Your action allows our school to be nimble when the health care environment changes rapidly and new opportunities and challenges for the nursing workforce abound.

Your gifts to the Funds for the School of Nursing make a difference by allowing:

  • The brightest and most dedicated students continue to have the very best nursing educational experience available anywhere in the country.

  • Nursing faculty have funding to conduct research to provide solutions to health issues facing our society and develop new models for care delivery.

  • Patients in our communities receive the best care from highly skilled professional nurses.

  • Our graduates become the leaders their colleagues and their communities need for a healthier future. 

Here at the U-M School of Nursing, your gifts touch and help lives every day. You can make a difference with an annual gift to the Funds for the School of Nursing.
