Allen College Day of Giving

Save the Date! The Day of Giving will take place on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.

Philanthropy has built Allen College, and philanthropy is what will help the College continue to flourish. On Tuesday, August 27, 2019, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and supporters of Allen College came together to raise funds for a much needed renovation of Gerard Hall. In total, over $15,500 was raised!

Through the Day of Giving, the philanthropic legacy of Dr. Russell and Jane Gerard was honored as we raised funds for the college's oldest building. Each semester, Gerard Hall’s classrooms host more than 500 classes for students enrolled in the School of Nursing and School of Health Sciences. With changes in education and healthcare, we must update our space to better serve the students and faculty of Allen College. Upgrades will include state-of-the-art equipment, improved accessibility for students, and will provide our faculty members with private offices in order to better serve our students.

Thank you for going #allinforallen and helping Allen College continue to be a leader in healthcare education. Please plan to join us Tuesday, September 1 for our 2020 Day of Giving!
