I gave a gift to Stony Brook through the Legacy Way brick program because it was a way to give back and become part of Stony Brook University in a forever way. With giving, I know every bit adds up and the large sums can really make a difference. In the future, I would be interested in giving to the School of Nursing fund because that is where I feel I can make an impact in students’ lives and in the future of my profession. I am grateful that I am able to give and feel good about giving to Stony Brook. I care about Stony Brook University and look back at my time here fondly. The School of Nursing and the Medical Center are amazing! I learned so much about the profession of nursing and about life. I hope that by giving monetarily I am able to help current students have an even better experience.
