$2 million gift names Regis nursing school

Brian Young, son of the late Regis trustee emeritus and longtime supporter Richard “Dick” W. Young, PhD, and Sheila Young, gifted $2 million to the Now We Fly campaign to name one of the four schools at Regis: The Richard and Sheila Young School of Nursing. Dick and Sheila’s lifetime giving to Regis totaled more than $1 million. The School of Nursing is the first school to be named at Regis. Read more.

Fung Scholars Program
In honor of her 50th Reunion in 2017, Julia Shen Fung ’67 committed to $5 million—the largest gift in Regis history—for the Now We Fly campaign to establish The Fung Scholars Program at Regis. Regis joins over 30 other universities around the world that have distinguished Fung Scholars, including Harvard, MIT, Northeastern, Boston College, and Princeton. Dean of Student Affairs Walt Horner and Assistant Director Alex Patturelli (pictured at left with students at Good Hope School, Julia Fung’s alma mater) recently traveled to Hong Kong to visit more than 250 prospective Fung Scholars at five schools.

Bequests and other planned gifts are a key piece of the campaign. In fiscal year 2018, more than $400,000 has been received from alumnae who chose to leave their legacy by including Regis in their wills. In addition to realized bequests, eligible donors may indicate their bequest or beneficiary intentions to be counted in the campaign goal. $4.2 million in planned gift intentions have been counted toward the Now We Fly campaign thus far. Learn more about planned gifts or contact us to discuss your options. Watch this short video to hear from other members of the Catherine Burke Society.
