Why Donate to Baptist College?
With a tradition of providing one of the finest educations in the tri-state area of Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi for nursing students and allied health students, Baptist College has experienced unprecedented growth recently. We've come a long way since graduating our first class of 33 baccalaureate students in 1999.
While an increasing enrollment is great news for the health care community, it brings with it an increasing need for student scholarships to support nursing students and allied health students. In addition, as the cost of higher education continues to rise, support from our donors is becoming increasingly important.
As friends or alumni of Baptist College of Health Sciences or Baptist Memorial Hospital, you have an exciting opportunity to help today's students shape their futures by contributing to an exceptional education that prepares them for the ever-changing world of health care. We are all asked to support many charities, but there may be none more important than helping nursing students and allied health students achieve their educational goals. Baptist College needs your help to meet the challenges that come with rapid growth.
How You Can Support Baptist College Today
Gifts can be targeted to selected funds or to a general fund that allows Baptist College to apply the gift as needed. We have several different giving opportunities you may want to consider:
Baptist College of Health Sciences has several student scholarships that are funded by alumni and friends of the College. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of our nursing students and allied health students, supporting scholarships is one of the best ways to make sure deserving students receive one of the best health care educations available in the Memphis area. To make a gift to any of these scholarships or to the College's general endowment, please contact Mary MacKinnon, development officer, at (901) 572-2773.
