Expanding the Capacity to Improve Lives

The UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing and the UCI Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences both have the privilege of receiving two of the largest single gifts ever to UCI. The Grosses and the Samuelis are visionary donors who recognize that improving healthcare begins with improving the support to students and to the leaders who teach and train them.

These generous and substantial gifts are invaluable for foundational growth and expansion. But philanthropic gifts of any and all sizes and frequency make a difference! While a pledge of $50,000 may endow a scholarship, a gift of $25 can offset the cost of a textbook for a student.

Supporting Our Students

We would greatly value any gift made in support of the UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing. Your investment enables us to support research, increase scholarships to students, and to sustain endeavors that transform community health. With the growing urgency and need for better-qualified nursing professionals at all levels of practice, your support is now more important than ever.
