Estate gives $10 million gift to the University of Kansas Medical Center
July 23, 2013
There are a number of different ways people decide to give their money. Some make cash gifts during a ceremony, while others whip out their credit cards and donate anonymously online, and still more announce pledges that will come later.
Another group of people choose to leave a legacy behind after they pass on. For instance, the estate of Stata and David Ringle left a $10 million gift to the University of Kansas Medical Center's School of Health Professions. The money will also benefit the hospital's libraries.
The amount will be divided into three parts, and each portion will go to creating scholarships, initiatives at the Clendening History of Medicine Library and projects within the Kenneth Spencer Research Library. On top of that, the couple also left their vast collection of medical books and documents to both libraries.
Many hospitals and associated facilities have been interested in raising money for various aims. For instance, the Taunton Daily Gazette reported that 7-year-old Jennifer Diniz has been trying to raise money for Boston Children's Hospital by selling bracelets at a nearby Uno Chicago Grill.
Individuals, programs and organizations that rely on fundraising to fuel sustainable operations might find nonprofit fundraising software advantageous. The solutions can facilitate the process of identifying grant opportunities, generate reports that demonstrate current financial need and showcase previous achievements.
