For Giving Day, Creighton’s annual day of fundraising — Wednesday, March 3 — dozens of our generous donors will match gifts or give additional sums to designated areas through challenge funds.
Donors supported such causes as the Creighton Fund, scholarships, personal protective equipment and the CURA Fund, which helps Creighton employees facing financial hardship.
"Scholarships have provided me a gateway to realize my dreams," says César Magaña Linares, JD‘22. "When people support me, they're supporting everyone I’ll be fighting for in the future."
Dr. Robinson credits his Creighton mentors for helping him navigate the initial hurdles of dental school and pushing him to succeed. He is grateful for the multiple scholarships that allowed him to follow his dream of becoming a dentist.
Diana Ndunda came to the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions with a vision in mind and a mission at heart. “I moved to the United States to go to pharmacy school,” says the Kenyan-born student. “I knew I wanted to serve others, and that this career path would give me purpose.”
Even if Abdul Tholley is in the thick of the 12-month Accelerated Nursing Program at Creighton’s Phoenix campus, he still finds the time to volunteer where he can. Even if it means leaving the country.
