Reasons to Give

genevieve szuba

“I have wonderful memories from my time at FPB. I received an excellent education and benefited throughout my life from its welcoming community. It is time for me to pay it forward and support what I believe in. As former Freedom Rider John Lewis said: 'If not us, then who? If not now, then when?'

“The opportunities in the field of nursing are expanding. The time is now to support FPB. It is up to us alumni to help provide for its future.”

Philanthropy is a personal issue

People and institutions give to the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing for a variety of reasons, ranging from pragmatic to sentimental. Perhaps you are an alumni who wants to ensure that the students of tomorrow have as many (if not more) opportunities as you found at Case Western Reserve University. Perhaps you wish to memorialize a family member, mentor, colleague or friend. The funds you donate to FPB can be designated for specific programs or just contributed to the cause of the university as a whole. Below are just a few of the many reasons people have given to FPB:

  • To provide professorships and research facilities that will enhance the university's ability to recruit high-caliber students and faculty.
  • To increase the percentage of alumni giving—a figure often considered both in collegiate rankings and by institutional donors.
  • To promote research or scholarship in a favorite field of endeavor such as dance, music or the visual arts.
  • To provide scholarships that allow students to enroll who could could not afford the full tuition—sometimes "returning the favor" for aid received in the past.
  • To fund cultural and scholarly programming ranging from lectures to performances that serve not only the academic community but also the greater Cleveland community.
  • To fund academic programs that will train the workforce of the future.
