The Campaign for Nursing

A Message from Dr. Alexander Gonzalez

President Alexander Gonzalez

I am pleased to announce that our campaign to raise private funds for Sacramento State’s School of Nursing is receiving a $300,000 boost from Catholic Healthcare West. 

Our goal is to raise $1.8 million that will be used for teaching equipment in the state-of-the-art labs we have created for the Nursing program in Folsom Hall. CHW’s contribution brings our current total to nearly $1.4 million.

We have previously received a $500,000 lead gift from the Frank M. & Gertrude R. Doyle Foundation and numerous gifts from faculty and staff, community supporters and alumni. To finish the campaign, we are reaching out to Nursing alumni throughout the state.

The teaching equipment funded by the campaign will allow faculty in the School of Nursing to build on their legacy of excellence in educating nurses for California. Changing demographics indicate that health care will only grow in importance in the years to come, and I know that our dedicated faculty will be ready to meet the needs of our state. 

I appreciate everyone who has helped us improve the School of Nursing in recent years. I see the success of the campaign thus far as an enormous vote of confidence from the community in the work we are doing. Especially during these difficult economic times, this is a direct reflection of the outstanding efforts of faculty and staff across our University. 

For more information on the campaign, or to contribute, please visit the campaign website.

Thank you very much for your dedication on behalf of our students.
