Eells Establishes Excellence Fund in Honor of Late Wife and Gator Nurse
Longtime friend and supporter William Eells recently made a $100,000 gift to support teaching and research programs within the College of Nursing. The gift established the Ellen Granberg Eells Excellence Fund in Nursing in honor of his late wife, Ellen Eells, (BSN 1964) a College of Nursing alumna and longtime supporter who passed away on April 17, 2008.
The couple had a strong tie to UF. The two met in the UF Health Science Center as students, she as a nursing student and he as a pharmacy student. This gift ensures that her legacy will continue its impact within the College for many years to come.
If you are interested in giving to The Ellen Granberg Eells Excellence Fund in Nursing, donations may be sent to the Office of Development, University of Florida, P.O. Box 100197, Gainesville, FL 32610. Checks should be made payable to the UF Foundation. For more information please email Anna Harper, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 352-273-6360.
