School of Nursing Reunion Giving

For more than 100 years, the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing has been educating health care professionals, educators and leaders. Today VUSN is among the nation’s elite nursing schools—it should come as no surprise that U.S. News & World Report recently announced rankings for 2017 and ourDNP program placed at No. 10 on the list and the MSN program ranked No. 13.

When you participate in Reunion giving, you’re adding to the legacy of generations of Vanderbilt School of Nursing alumni. Gifts of all sizes help ensure that today’s students are able to continue pushing the VUSN status to greater heights. Your gift will also put your class closer to achieving its Reunion fundraising goals.

Vanderbilt also recognizes donors of $2,500 or more with membership in the Julia Hereford Society. Learn more about the Julia Hereford Society.

A Reunion is a special time to look back at your time at Vanderbilt and all that has happened since. Honor that life—changing piece of your history by giving to celebrate your School of Nursing Reunion. 

What counts as a Reunion gift?

Any outright gift (cash or securities), matching company gift, payment on a pledge or new multi-year pledge made to the School of Nursing between July 1, 2015, and December 31, 2016, will count toward the Reunion class giving total and participation rate. The total amount of a multi-year pledge counts in the overall class total. For example, if you pledge $2,500 per year for five years, the total pledge of $12,500 will be counted in your class Reunion gift total. Also, planned gifts (e.g., documented bequests) count for the Classes of 1986, 1981, 1976, 1971, 1966 and all Quinqs.

Do gifts to other areas of Vanderbilt count? Only gifts, pledges, and planned gifts to the School of Nursing count in participation and giving totals. Giving to the School of Nursing Annual Fund is encouraged, but you may designate your gift or pledge to any existing School of Nursing fund.
