Wednesday, May 3, is VCU Giving Day, one special day to give back and make a difference for current and future students at the School of Nursing. Learn more about the campaign and how to give below.

Student Success Fund

The student success fund at the VCU School of Nursing provides resources, support and new opportunities to ensure every student can be their best. Gifts support our new academic coaching program that provides one-on-one guidance to students so they can make the most of their educational experience. Funds also provide opportunities to participate in practical and research-based experiential learning opportunities that enhance what our students learn in the classroom.

Community Engagement Fund

The health and wellness of our city is incredibly important to us. Our community outreach programs make enormous strides in addressing health disparities and provide underserved populations greater access to health education and coaching, physicals, and free health screenings. Our students gain valuable experience in these settings as providers, giving them insights into care implementation and coordination.

Giving is as easy as 1-2-3!
