School of Nursing secures $6M gift for building expansion
The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation of Philadelphia has given $6 million to the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing to fund the expansion of its current Anne M. Pinkard building. Since its first gift in 1990, the Carpenter Foundation has given more than $12 million in support of School of Nursing initiatives, including the building, community health efforts, and an endowed professorship.
"This gift is incredibly important to securing our future as a school that provides the very best education and opportunities," said Patricia Davidson, dean of the School of Nursing. "The Carpenter Foundation has been integral to our success over many years, and their support of a new building will help us expand our current footprint and create an enhanced space to collaborate, research, and improve health care locally and globally."
