Central Florida Foundation donor leaves legacy for future nurses
The College of Central Florida Foundation recently announced an $88,756 planned gift to establish the Frances M. Lowe Endowed Nursing Scholarship at the college.
The donor, Frances Lowe, was a resident of Inverness. Lowe had a passion for education expressed by her interest to help future generations achieve their dreams of becoming nurses.
Staff from the CF Foundation met with her and her adviser to discuss how the Foundation may help her achieve her goal. After a tour of the College of Central Florida’s Citrus Campus nursing lab and a few more conversations, Lowe committed to create the endowed nursing scholarship at CF through a generous gift through her will.
Lowe died in September 2019 with an intent to help others well into the future through education.
“This generous planned gift will provide much-needed scholarship opportunities for nursing students attending CF,” said Chris Knife, executive director of the CF Foundation.
If you are interested in providing a legacy gift to the College of Central Florida, one way to do so is to include the CF Foundation in your will. Planned gifts help ensure that students will have the necessary funds to transform their lives through education.
