We hope you will consider making a gift to Binghamton University's Decker School of Nursing. Every gift — large or small — makes a difference.

The Binghamton Fund

The Binghamton Fund is the University's annual giving program. You may designate your gift to the Decker School of Nursing, providing valuable funding to address the school's greatest needs. Together with gifts from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends, your annual contribution to the Binghamton Fund supports nursing and healthcare students, faculty, programs and projects.

The online form is easy and only takes a few minutes. Simply go to the Binghamton University Foundation's secure online giving site and complete the information requested. Be sure to designate the Binghamton Fund for the Decker School of Nursing!

Once your transaction is approved, you will receive an e-mail confirmation of your gift, followed by an official tax receipt in the mail a few days later. Gifts of $1,000 or more to the Binghamton Fund within a fiscal year are recognized with membership to the Binghamton Fund Leadership Society.

Haley Anderson Memorial Fund

A memorial fund has been established at the Decker School of Nursing in honor of Haley Anderson, a senior nursing student who died in March 2018. Read a message from Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger about Haley's death.

Assessment kit sponsorship

Nursing students are required to purchase a medical assessment kit for use during clinical and simulation experiences. These kits contain important equipment, including a blood pressure cuff, stethoscope and sphygmomanometer, and are an essential component for success in the nursing program.

You can provide a student with a needed kit. Your support not only lessens the student's financial burden, but also celebrates the student's commitment to caring for others. Sponsors will have the opportunity to mentor the students they support and connect with them at special events.

You may sponsor as many students as desired. To be a sponsor, please make a gift of $125 and complete the required information.

Other giving opportunities

Additional funding opportunities are available to donors interested in supporting the Decker School of Nursing. We encourage you to contact Rebecca Benner, associate vice president for advancement, at or 607–777–7322 to discuss these options.
