Donate to the UCF College of Nursing

We owe our successes in large part to the generous contributions of the alumni, friends, corporations and foundations who have supported our efforts. At the College of Nursing, every gift has an impact that extends beyond the college into our communities, and every gift is deeply appreciated. We thank those who have invested in the college and inspired our students and faculty to pursue their academic and professional dreams.

Join the Knightingale Society

With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you can join the Knightingale Society at the UCF College of Nursing. These gifts provide additional funding for nursing scholarships, equipment enhancements, professional development, and tools for recruiting the best and brightest students.

The UCF College of Nursing founded the Knightingale Society in 2007 in honor of Florence Nightingale – and added a “K” as a nod to the university’s mascot, the Knight.

New members of the Knightingale Society are welcomed into the society each fall with a pinning ceremony to present them with their distinctive Knightingale Society pin. Members are also invited to the College of Nursing’s annual appreciation luncheon each spring where donors are honored and have an opportunity to meet scholarship recipients.

Fund Scholarships

Scholarships are a funding priority and assist students with their tuition and educational expenses. Many nursing students are not able to work during the program due to the rigorous curriculum. Scholarship support is critical and helps the college recruit the best and brightest students. Donors and scholarship recipients are honored at an appreciation luncheon held each spring.
