SON Celebrates 2nd Best Fundraising Year Ever in 2016

More than $3,600,000 in private gifts and grants were raised to support the people and work of the School of Nursing in 2016.

These gifts have already had a tremendous impact on the lives of students and faculty at the School of Nursing, and will go on to affect patients and their families for years to come.

Our wonderful constituents give back to help secure the excellence that is the hallmark of Carolina Nursing for future generations of SON graduates and the patients they will serve.

Our sincere THANKS to all who support us for making the last year one for the books!
