Nancy Boyer

“In the early ’70s, University leaders saw a new future for nurses. Because of their foresight, I was empowered to take my career beyond where anyone thought a nurse could go. I’m grateful for the doors that were opened by pioneers like the School of Nursing’s founding dean, Loretta Ford. And when you’re grateful, you give back. That’s what I’m doing by making an estate gift to the School of Nursing. My scholarship fund will support future nurses who will care for countless patients and families. It’s a ripple effect, impacting generations we’ll never even meet.”

— Nancy N. Boyer, ’74NP

Nancy established a charitable remainder unitrust, which is invested in the University’s endowment. The trust provides income to her now and ultimately will become an endowed scholarship fund for students at the School of Nursing.
